THE WONDERLIC TEST
Developed in the 1930s by the industrial psychologist Eldon F. Wonderlic, the Wonderlic Personnel Test is used by recruiters, employers, and the NFL to measure cognitive ability. The 12-minute, 50-question exam has been used by the league since the 1970s, and is administered to potential draftees during teh annual Indianapolis Scouting Combine. According to the Wonderlic website, the test can forecast a player's ability to learn the playbook, work with a team, and adapt on the field. The average individual score is said to be 21; the average NFL player's score is reportedly 19 (a score of 20 correlates to an IQ of 100).
