eBay was under fire this week by the people who come up with the IQ tests that assess the mental capacities of students and criminals for allowing tests to be sold over its auction site. Harcourt Assessment Inc. is reportedly worried that people will use the tests to coach people unfairly, but the online giant is letting the sale go ahead. And why not? If the execs at Harcourt are such geniuses, let them figure out a way to hack in. Besides, some of these tests are being sold at deep discounts. Why would you pay nearly US$1,000 for the adult test if you could get it on eBay for about US$250? That’s just stupid.
