Field of Application+
Measures the level and structure of the intelligence in accordance with the Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) model, on the basis of six ability factors (fluid intelligence, crystallized intelligence, quantitative thinking, short-term memory, visual processing and long-term memory). This modular test provides both a quick global overview of intelligence level and a nuanced and detailed assessment. It is used in decision-oriented psychological assessment, enabling specific issues to be clarified accurately and economically. It is used in manufacturing & safety assessments and academic testing.
S2: Variable form II – modular
S3: Global form - test battery with fixed test sequence
Depending on the subtest, the respondent’s answers are given either in multiple-choice format or as automated free responses. The six ability factors are assessed by the following subtests:
- Fluid intelligence:
- Numerical inductive reasoning: Identifying the rules on which a number sequence is based and using them to continue the sequence.
- Figural inductive reasoning: The ninth field of a 3x3 matrix of symbols must be filled with one of eight possible symbols in accordance with the underlying rules.
- Verbal deductive reasoning: Two statements must be logically combined and a conclusion drawn from them.
- Crystallized intelligence:
- General knowledge: The respondent completes definitions in a cloze text.
- Verbal fluency: An unordered series of letters must be turned into a meaningful noun.
- Word meaning: A synonym for a given word must be selected. The test uses a multiple-choice format.
- Short-term memory:
- Visual short-term memory: Orientation points are marked on a street map. The respondent must memorize the points and reproduce them.
- Verbal short-term memory: The respondent memorizes the names and the order of bus stops and recognizes them.
- Long-term memory:
- Long-term memory: This subtest consists of a memorizing phase, an intermediate phase and a test phase; it involves remembering information about fictitious people.
- Visual processing:
- Spatial perception: A test cube is shown. The respondent states whether one of six comparison cubes represents the given test cube from a different perspective.
- Quantitative thinking:
- Computational estimation: A calculation is shown. The respondent states which of four answers is closest to the correct answer.
- Arithmetical competence: The respondent must perform a computational task in his/her head.
- Arithmetical flexibility: A given equation must be solved by inserting the correct arithmetical operations.
- Algebraic reasoning: The respondent solves text calculation tasks.
between 3 and max. 40 minutes per subtest
For S2 (fixed sequence of subtests) the time required is approx. 2 hours and 52 minutes.
