The event of a price movement that approaches a support level or a resistance level established earlier by the market. A test is passed if prices do not go below the support or resistance level, and the test is failed if prices go on to new lows or highs.

The attempt by a stock price or a stock market average to break through a support level or a resistance level. For example, a stock that has declined to $20 on several occasions without moving lower may be expected to test this support level once again. Failing to fall below $20 one more time would be considered a successful test of the support level and a bullish sign for the stock.

It is because of this case, along with subsequent rulings by the California Department of Education, that Larry along with all African-American students in the state of California cannot have their intelligence tested by standardized intelligent tests.
These results suggest examinees evaluated by examiners who are provided deliberate test practice and have more experience with the administration and scoring of an intelligence test will tend to obtain higher scores than examinees evaluated by examiners who have less experience and deliberate practice with test administration.
Intelligence test measure an individual's ability in relatively global areas such as verbal comprehension, perceptual organization, or reasoning and thereby help determine potential for scholastic work or certain occupation (Gregory,2006,P:58).E.L.Thorndike divided intelligent activity into three types: social intelligence, or ability to understand and deal with person; concrete intelligence or ability to understand and deal with things and abstract intelligence, or ability to understand and deal with verbal and mathematical symbols (Freeman, 1963, p: 157).

But unlike Piaget -- who focused on how children made mistakes -- Vygotsky focused on what children could accomplish with the assistance of another person.
What must be remembered is that behavior genetic research can only estimate to what extent the variance of one measurement, such as intelligence test scores, is correlated with the variance of another measurement, such as genetic differences, in a population of individuals.
