The ASSESS system is designed to accept some optional intellectual ability tests and incorporate these results into the ASSESS reports.
Intellectual Ability Testing Options:
Raven’s Standard Progressive Matrices
The Standard Progressive Matrices is a word-free, number-free, culture-fair measure of abstract reasoning ability.
More specifically, it provides a measure of one's ability to perceive and understand concepts by asking
examinees to determine the relationship between a series of figures and identify the figure which will complete
the system of relations. This test provides an indication of an individual's capacity for observation, operational
problem solving, and learning. It is a good, general purpose test of "thinking power" and is best used in conjunction
with another test such as the Watson-Glaser or the Thurstone.
