Link to "non verbal intelligence" is unrelated[edit]

The link to "non verbal intelligence" does not work properly in that one gets taken to an entry on "non verbal" which has nothing to do with intelligence. I don't know how to put it right.

In that context there should be a reference to:

McCallum, R. S. (Ed.) (2003), Handbook of Nonverbal Assessment (pp. 223-240). New York: Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers.

Additional material[edit]

Folks—I've just adding an 'Under construction' template, because I'm gradually trying to fill out this article a little bit. Just to explain what I'm up to, over the next few days I plan to add extra information on:

  • The proximity of Raven's Matrices to 'g' in multidimensional scaling.
  • The factors that appear to underlie solution rates on specific items in RM.
  • The rules that Carpenter et al. suggest can be used to solve Raven's Matrices items.

I may also pick up on the current comments about racial differences in RM scores, and on sex differences. This is a controversial area though, and still under considerable debate, so I'll try to tread carefully... Do please shout or edit if there's anything that you reckon needs discussion, or if I add anything that seems too strong! –  Stuart.   (Sjb90 |  talk) 16:47, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

A picture of some matrices should definitely be included in this article. There are some in the wikimedia commons, can someone please add one/a few? If they are copyrighted, a 'fair use' inclusion should not be hard to justify. Arcades (talk) 22:36, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

I've went and added an example I found on Wikimedia Commons. MaesterTonberry (talk) 23:27, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Critiques and responses[edit]

I've removed this section as the 'critiques' seem to have little to do with RPM but rather its use in the wider debate of race and intelligence (which we already have an article on). If anyone wants to incorporate discussion on the culture fairness of the test itself I'd be fine with that but this article shouldn't be hijacked to serve a different debate.

The article says that the test uses multiple choice but in the example it shows only the 3x3 matrix and not the multiple choices, so the example is not typical or valid. Rocketcount (talk) 21:35, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Intelligence Citations Bibliography for Articles Related to IQ Testing[edit]

You may find it helpful while reading or editing articles to look at a bibliography of Intelligence Citations, posted for the use of all Wikipedians who have occasion to edit articles on human intelligence and related issues. I happen to have circulating access to a huge academic research library at a university with an active research program in these issues (and to another library that is one of the ten largest public library systems in the United States) and have been researching these issues since 1989. You are welcome to use these citations for your own research. You can help other Wikipedians by suggesting new sources through comments on that page. It will be extremely helpful for articles on human intelligence to edit them according to the Wikipedia standards for reliable sources for medicine-related articles, as it is important to get these issues as well verified as possible. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk) 19:28, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

deleted this[edit]

"The explanation (note: for differences in test results from varying ethnic groups) has to be sought elsewhere. And the implications for such things as educational and social policy are dramatic."

This does not belong in an article on Wikipedia.

Ceiling[edit]

Does anyone know what the ceiling of this test is? I think it should be mentioned in the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.49.205.2 (talk) 19:31, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
