This new global item-banked version has instructions and enhanced reports available in more than 14 languages.
Given eight patterns, the subject must identify the missing ninth pattern All of the questions on the Raven's progressives consist of visual geometric design with a missing piece.
The test taker is given six to eight choices to pick from and fill in the missing piece. Raven thought that the tests commonly in use at that time were cumbersome to administer and the results difficult to interpret. Accordingly, he set about developing simple measures of the two main components of Spearman's g: Raven's tests of both were developed with the aid of what later became known as item response theory.
Raven first published his Progressive Matrices in the United Kingdom in InHarcourt Assessment, Inc.
Harcourt was later acquired by Pearson PLC. Versions[ edit ] The Matrices are available in three different forms for participants of different ability: These were the original form of the matrices, first published in The booklet comprises five sets A to E of 12 items each e.
All items are presented in black ink on a white background. Designed for children aged 5 through 11 years-of-age, the elderly, and mentally and physically impaired individuals. This test contains sets A and B from the standard matrices, with a further set of 12 items inserted between the two, as set Ab.
Most items are presented on a coloured background to make the test visually stimulating for participants. However the very last few items in set B are presented as black-on-white ; in this way, if a subject exceeds the tester's expectations, transition to sets C, D, and E of the standard matrices is eased.
The advanced form of the matrices contains 48 items, presented as one set of 12 set Iand another of 36 set II. Items are again presented in black ink on a white background, and become increasingly difficult as progress is made through each set.
These items are appropriate for adults and adolescents of above-average intelligence. This was to address the problem of the Raven's Matrices being too well known in the general population. Items in the parallel tests have been constructed so that average solution rates to each question are identical for the classic and parallel versions.
This was based on the "parallel" version but, although the test was the same length, it had more difficult items in order to restore the discrimination that the original SPM had among more able adolescents and young adults when it was first published.
This new test, developed with the aid of better sampling arrangements and developments in the procedures available to implement the item response theoryhas turned out to have exemplary test properties.
Because of their independence of language and reading and writing skills, and the simplicity of their use and interpretation, they quickly found widespread practical application.
For example, all entrants to the British armed forces from onwards took a twenty-minute version of the SPM, and potential officers took a specially adapted version as part of British War Office Selection Boards. The routine administration of what became the Standard Progressive Matrices to all entrants conscripts to many military services throughout the world including the Soviet Union continued at least until the present century.
It was by bringing together these data that James R. Flynn was able to place the intergenerational increase in scores beyond reasonable doubt. A study provided evidence that individuals with Asperger syndromea high-functioning autism spectrum disorderscore higher than other individuals on Raven's tests.
In addition, the individuals with classic autism were providing correct answers to the Raven's test in less time than individuals without autism, although erring as often.List of psychological tests in the Center for Psychological Studies, Nova Southeastern University.

Raven’s Progressive Matrices is an example of the latter. It measures the abstract reasoning and fluid intelligence that Cattell wrote about. It’s the kind of intelligence that allows us to solve most everyday problems.
