APIS-Z is a multidimensional test battery for the assessment of general intelligence.

DESCRIPTION: APIS-Z consists of eight tests: Behaviour, Squares, Synonyms, Classification, Number Transformation, New Words, Cubes, and Stories. Four types of ability were taken into account in the construction of APIS-Z: abstract-logical, verbal, visual-spatial, and social. Each of these abilities is represented by two tests. The items in two tests are in a forced-choice format and open-ended in the remaining tests.

RELIABILITY: High internal consistency for the total score, lower internal consistency for separate tests. Satisfactory stability for students, low for school pupils.

VALIDITY: APIS-Z scores correlate positively albeit weakly with school grades in the pupil sample. Results of factor analysis and differences between student scores depending on college specialty and sex-determined differences suggest that the different tests measure different abilities.

NORMS: For high school grade III (now high school grade II) and for third-year students (Polish national samples), adults and secondary or higher education (incidental samples).

APPLICATIONS: Primary for selection and career counseling. An easier version of the APIS test battery is APIS-P.

Note! The APIS-Z test battery is available in booklet and answer-sheet versions.
