Following the publication of Raven’s CPM/CVSINDIA, Raven’s CPM/CVSHINDI with norms for Hindi-speaking populations will help you measure ability in those who are not fluent in English.

  • Raven’s Colored Progressive Matrices and Crichton Vocabulary Scales are one of the most widely-used assessments in India and the world for testing of cognitive ability/intelligence. These scales have found varied applications in educational, clinical and research settings and are appreciated for their ease of administration and use as quick screeners.
  • In 2012, our office published Raven’s CPM/CVS norms for Indian children, a significant development for the field of assessment. With the publication of Raven’s CPM/CVS INDIA, school and mental-health professionals are now able to use updated norms for Indian children that give a valid picture of cognitive abilities in children.
  • However, despite offering professional superior assessment results with Raven’s CPM/CVSINDIA, the fact remained that the Crichton Vocabulary Scale (CVS) was testing verbal ability through the medium of English, a language that does not enjoy universal and uniform proficiency across different demographic categories in India. Hence, many professionals had to limit their use of Raven’s to CPM, the nonverbal component, given the demographically diverse range of children they encountered in their practice.
  • In order to provide more testing options to professionals who use Raven’s for assessing cognitive abilities, our office has now developed Raven’s CPM/CVS with Hindi norms and instructions, and translations of the Hindi CVS word card and CPM/CVS test instructions in seven major Indian languages.
  • In India, as per estimates, 41% to 45% of Indians speak or know Hindi whereas 25% of the population are native Hindi speakers. Taking these figures into account, norms for Hindi instructions and translations in seven Indian languages- Bengali, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Gujarati, Marathi – became the chosen way forward in order to address language barriers in testing experienced by professionals. The development of Raven’s CPM/CVSHINDI significantly addresses barriers to language and makes Raven’s available for testing a larger population of children in India who can be now tested in their native language.
  • Professionals can choose to use Raven’s CPM/CVSINDIA or Raven’s CPM/CVSHINDI taking into consideration background information of the child such as language fluency, exposure and other socio-economic factors.
