Raven's Progressive Matrices (RPM)
Raven's Progressive Matrices (RPM) is an intelligence test often used in educational settings that is comprised of 60 multiple choice questions. This is a nonverbal test in that the questions are comprised of visual patterns. RPM measures the ability to reason and general intelligence which is comprised of two components (the ability to think clearly about complex ideas and the ability to store and recall information).
This measure can be used at all age levels with three different versions used for differing groups: the Standard Progressive Matrices, Coloured Progressive Matrices (for children, the elderly, or developmentally challenged individuals) and Advanced Progressive Matrices (used for higher intelligence adults).
Research has shown that individuals with Asperger's Syndrome score higher on RPM than other individuals.
