Mills, Carol J.; Tissot, Sherri L.
Gifted Child Quarterly, v39 n4 p209-17 Fall 1995
The Raven's Progressive Matrices (RPM) and the Raven's Advanced Progressive Matrices (APM) were evaluated as possible instruments for identifying academically talented students in minority populations. A significantly higher proportion of minority children scored well on the RPM than on a traditional measure. Issues and concerns about using the APM as the sole identification measure are raised.
