Product Details

The Raven’s SPM and SPM Plus each produces a single raw score and percentile rank to indicate educative ability or the ability to think clearly and extract meaning out of events, compared to a norm group in the general population.

Benefits

  • Use in a variety of settings, such as testing culturally diverse populations, to minimize the impact of cultural or language bias.
  • Available in a variety of pre-packaged kits for easy purchase and a discounted price from the individual components.

Features

The SPM test has a total of 60 items presented in 5 sets (A-E) of 12 items. The SPM Plus contains more powerful items while retaining the five-set, sixty-item format of the SPM.

  • Multiple manuals contain test administration and interpretation guides, as well as research and technical information.
  • Each version of the Raven’s Progressive Matrices is administered by use of a booklet containing the version specific matrices.
  • Easy Score Answer Sheets transfer answers from the front page directly to translate responses into scores.
  • Easy Score Answer Forms eliminates the need for scoring keys in most situations.
