The WISC-III and Raven Coloured Progressive Matrices Test: A Pilot Study of Relationships.
Kluever, Raymond C.; And Others
The relationship between scores on Raven's Coloured Progressive Matrices (CPM) scores and subtest scores and IQs from the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-III (WISC-III) was studied for 28 children aged 6 to 11 years. Subjects had been referred to a university assessment center because they were believed to have exceptional learning patterns (potential giftedness) or behavioral difficulties. Reading, mathematics, and written language achievement scores were also determined. Correlations indicated a moderate relationship between the Raven CPM percentiles and the WISC-III IQs and certain scaled scores. There were also significant correlations between the Woodcock Johnson Tests of Achievement-Revised and the CPM percentiles. Results also indicate that both verbal and nonverbal abilities are assessed by Raven's CPM and that the CPM should not be assumed to be a purely nonverbal measure of intelligence.
