Raven’s Progressive Matrices

Raven's Progressive Matrices enjoy a long and famous history in the assessment of general cognitive abilities in children.

The Progressive Matrices usefully provide an assessment of non-verbal ability, an important feature for ethnically diverse populations.

The Raven’s Progressive Matrices are in wide use throughout the world and come in a variety of formats to cover educational, clinical and occupational uses.

A measure of eductive ability – the ability to make sense and meaning out of complex or confusing data; the ability to perceive new patterns and relationships, and to forge (largely non-verbal) constructs which make it easy to handle complexity.

The Raven’s Progressive Matrices comes in 3 formats:

  • Colour Progressive Matrices (CPM) (for use with children and elderly people)
  • Standard Progressive Matrices (SPM) (for use with the general population)
  • Advanced Progressive Matrices (APM) (top 20% of the population)

Raven’s Progressive Matrices have a wide variety of applications including:

  • In educational settings the Matrices have a long history of application and use. Scores are relatively unaffected by linguistic and ethnic background and can be used as a good predictor of success in an educational context for both children and adults.
  • In clinical settings the reliability of the measures and lack of bias makes them ideal tools in neuropsychological assessment, working with elderly people and many clinical groups whose particular needs make the demands of more traditional cognitive testing unrealistic.
  • For many years the Matrices have found wide application in numerous research studies. Their strong theoretical background, lengthy citation count and application across multiple language, ethnic and cultural groups make them ideal tools for investigations requiring measurements of cognitive abilities in a wide range of organisational, educational and clinical settings.

The following versions are available:

  • CPM kit
  • SPM kit
  • APM kit

If you want to use the APM in an organisational and HR setting, please see Raven's APM Short-Form for the most up-to-date version and available format options.
