Kirby, J. R.; Das, J. P. – Alberta Journal of Educational Research, 1978
Raven's Coloured Progressive Matrices and a battery of ability tests were administered to a sample of 104 male fourth graders for purposes of investigating the relationships between 2 previously identified subscales of the Raven and the ability tests. Results indicated use of a spatial strategy and to a lesser extent, use of reasoning, indicating…

Ogunlade, James O. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1978
The scores of 537 14-year-old students in Nigeria on the Raven Progressive Matrices were correlated with their scores on an achievement test, to provide an estimate of the predictive validity of the Raven. Results indicated low validity for this usage. (Author/JKS)

Carlson, Jerry S.; Wiedl, Karl Heinz – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
Measures of concrete operational thought and the Raven's Coloured Progressive Matrices were factor analyzed for a sample of primary students. Results indicated that primarily perceptual abilities are required for solution of the Piagetian tests, although abstract reasoning is involved in the solution of matrices and in conservation of substance…

Factor analysis of an administration of the Raven Progressive Matrices Test to children in grades 1, 2, and 3 revealed three orthogonal factors interpreted as (1) concrete and abstract reasoning, (2) continuous and discrete pattern completion, and (3) pattern completion through disclosure. Results are discussed in several contexts. (RC)

Thissen, David M. – Journal of Educational Measurement, 1976
Where estimation of abilities in the lower half of the ability distribution for the Raven Progressive Matrices is important, or an increase in accuracy of ability estimation is needed, the multiple category latent trait estimation provides a rational procedure for realizing gains in accuracy from the use of information in wrong responses.…
