Nonverbal and Language-Reduced Measures of Cognitive Ability: A Review and Evaluation
Drevon, Daniel D.; Knight, Rachel M.; Bradley-Johnson, Sharon
Contemporary School Psychology, v21 n3 p255-266 Sep 2017
With the number of new and revised nonverbal and language-reduced tests of cognitive ability, selection and interpretation of appropriate measures can be complicated. Seven nonverbal or language-reduced tests with normative data collected within the last 15 years were evaluated. Besides evaluating technical adequacy, other variables affecting test selection and interpretation including adequacy of floors and item gradients, provision of data for subgroups of students, percent of timed items, and response mode are described. Eight additional tests with language-reduced components also were reviewed. Implications for practice and research are presented.
