Alfred Binet


Who is Alfred Binet?

Alfred Binet was a French psychologist who invented the first practical intelligence test, the Binet-Simon scale.

Along with his collaborator Théodore Simon, Binet published revisions of his intelligence scale in 1908 and 1911, the last appearing just before his death.
