1.)
She got an A.

2.)
The problem with IQ tests is it, that they are based on
the social background/experience and language. This becomes
a problem, if one tries to evaluate children who come
out of disadvantaged groups or have a different mother tongue
- - with dyslexia not uncommon.
Stanford-Binet is NOT without that bias.

Example:
"What tool does an hacker need?"
- -- mouse 
- -- hoe 
- -- keyboard 
- -- computer 
- -- hack 
- -- white hat 
- -- black hat 
- -- none of the above

And what would the intelligent child 
of a Brazilian woodcutter answer?
