Raven’s APM measures high-level observation skills, clear thinking ability, and intellectual capacity. This untimed test is designed to differentiate between people at the high end of intellectual ability. When administered under timed conditions, the APM can also be used to assess intellectual efficiency – quick and accurate high-level intellectual work.

The APM score can be used as an indication of a candidate’s potential for success in high-level technical, professional, and executive positions that require high levels of clear and accurate thinking, problem identification, holistic situation assessment, and monitoring of tentative solutions for consistency with all available information. The APM score also can be used for developmental purposes in occupational and advanced educational settings. The nonverbal aspect of the test minimizes the impact of cultural or language bias.

The Raven’s APM produces a single raw score as well as percentile rank to indicate the candidate’s educative ability or the ability to make sense of complex situations, compared to a norm group.

Features & Benefits

Kits

Raven’s Progressive Matrices is available in a variety of pre-packaged Kits for easy purchase and a discounted price from the individual components. Customers can purchase specific Coloured, Standard, or Advanced Kits or a Complete Kit containing all three versions.

Answer Forms

Most versions of the Raven’s Progressive Matrices have Easy Score Answer Sheets. These are double page forms that transfer answers from the front page directly to a back page designed to translate responses into scores.

Test Booklets

Each version of the Raven’s Progressive Matrices is administered by use of a booklet containing the version specific matrices. These can be reused over time, or some have used them as the Answer Sheet as well (although this can be quite expensive). Test Booklets can be purchased individually or in packages of ten for group administration.

Manuals

Raven’s Progressive Matrices have a long and distinguished history of research. There are six (6) manuals available (officially referred to as Sections 1 – 6) that not only discuss how to administer and interpret the test, but contain numerous research and technical information as well.

When purchasing a Kit, all of the manuals relevant to the version you are purchasing are included. If you wish to purchase additional Manuals, detailed descriptions of their content are listed in the Manual section of this site.

Scoring Keys

Easy Score Answer Forms have eliminated the need for Scoring Keys in most situations. If you still have large numbers of Hand-Scorable Answer Forms, or several of the versions we have not yet revised, the Scoring Keys are listed with the appropriate Answer Form.
