I was just wondering what the average score was the EIQ test, and what the average score would be for those with ASD?

would there be such a thing as an average, everyone is different. I know mathematically an average could be worked out but in reality it would probably vary a lot.

Average in tests like that is generally 100. 100 is the center of wherever the vast majority of scores fall. The further away one is from 100, the less "average" you are in comparison to everyone else that has taken the test.

Exactly what 100 actually represents changes as the population changes.

Since the "Q" stands for quotient, it is based on the average being 100.

According to Wikipeda the average is between 85 to 100%. I do not think there is something like an average for people with AS. There is a lot people with AS with high IQs, just not everybody.
