Johnson, Wendy; Deary, Ian J.; Bouchard, Thomas J., Jr. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2018
Most study samples show less variability in key variables than do their source populations due most often to indirect selection into study participation associated with a wide range of personal and circumstantial characteristics. Formulas exist to correct the distortions of population-level correlations created. Formula accuracy has been tested…

Sideridis, Georgios D. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2016
The purpose of the present studies was to test the hypothesis that the psychometric characteristics of ability scales may be significantly distorted if one accounts for emotional factors during test taking. Specifically, the present studies evaluate the effects of anxiety and motivation on the item difficulties of the Rasch model. In Study 1, the…

Hamel, Ronald; Schmittmann, Verena D. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2006
The Raven Advanced Progressive Matrices Test (APM) is a well-known measure of higher order general mental ability. The time to administer the test, 40 to 60 minutes, is sometimes regarded as a drawback. To meet efficiency needs, the APM can be administered as a 30-or 40-minute timed test, or one of two developed short versions could be used. In…

Wiedl, Karl Heinz; Carlson, Jerry S. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
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)

Powers, Stephen; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1986
The predictive validity of the Standard Progressive Matrices (SPM) was examined with a sample of 212 sixth-grade students and 214 seventh-grade students. Correlation coefficients between the SPM and the California Achievement Tests of Reading, Language, and Mathematics ranged from .34 to .60. (Author/LMO)

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…

Garrity, Linda I.; Donoghue, James T. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
The Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test and the Raven's Coloured Progressive Matrices were given to two samples of preschool children to investigate differences between problem children and nonproblem children as well as sex differences. Some comparisons were significant. Tables are presented and results are discussed. (JKS)

Sidles, Craig; Mac Avoy, James – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1987
Bilingual Navajo adolescents aged 14-16 were administered the Raven Standard Progressive Matrices (RSPM) and Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills (CTBS). Correlations were moderate and were higher for females than for males. Norms were established for adolescent Navajos on the RSPM, a nonverbal test of intelligence and visual reasoning. (Author/GDC)

Helmes, Edward – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1987
Canadian undergraduate students were administered the British general ability test, AH2, along with a multiple-choice vocabulary test and the Standard Progressive Matrices, a nonverbal ability test. Scores were compared with British norms and intercorrelated with those of the other two tests. Correlations with the other ability tests were low.…

Styles, Irene; Andrich, David – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1993
This paper describes the use of the Rasch model to help implement computerized administration of the standard and advanced forms of Raven's Progressive Matrices (RPM), to compare relative item difficulties, and to convert scores between the standard and advanced forms. The sample consisted of 95 girls and 95 boys in Australia. (SLD)

Puhan, Biranchi N. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
One hundred undergraduate arts students were tested on all the scales of Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scales (WAIS) and the Differential Aptitude Tests. Varimax solutions were extracted on WAIS scores under four analytic conditions. No progressive increment in the WAIS communalities was marked as the marker variables increased. (Author/RL)

Dillon, Ronna F. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1980
The extent to which college students performed differentially on 3 x 3 figural analogies administered under two elaborative testing conditions was investigated. Results indicated that subjects who demonstrated a preferred testing condition performed more effectively upon retesting than did a control group not displaying differential performance as…
