In Science, IQ
According to the psychological tests and measures standards as described in psych classes: Q - What do IQ tests measure? A - IQ Q - What is IQ? A - What IQ measures The significance of an IQ test is that you have demonstrated the ability to get a good score on an IQ test. The assumption is that a high score on an IQ test indicates an intelligence level. A score of 135 indicates that out of a random group of 100 people, only about 5 would be able to get as good or better score.
Answer You asked what such a score means, and I think we can do a better job answering your question with easily verifiable information. Assuming that the score was achieved on a well-regarded, rigorous test such as the Wechsler (WAIS-III or IV), an IQ of 126 suggests a superior intellectual talent shared by only about 1 in every 20-30 people. Such a person would usually be one of the smartest people in a typical grade or middle school classroom. She would often have begun to read earlier than most, and at any stage of childhood, would seem to have a larger vocabulary, more general knowledge and common sense, and greater moral sensitivity, than most children of the same age. She would appear to learn more quickly, but more importantly, would be able to grasp concepts that many same-age persons were not able to, even if given virtually unlimited time.
Later in life, it would not be surprising to see that a person, with the level of talent suggested by an IQ of 126, had graduated college or had even become a physician, lawyer, engineer, scientist, or executive. The typical professional in any of those fields will have an IQ of 120 or more; college graduates typically have IQs of 115 or more. If I were a teacher, parent, or counselor of a child with such intellectual talent (when verified through means other than just the IQ test, such as early development, school grades, etc.), I would certainly encourage the child to tackle greater challenges than are usually offered in the classroom at school, whether via accellerated programs, music lessons, home schooling, or grade skipping.
