This is a test of vocabulary and mastery in adequate use of this vocabulary depending on the context.

DESCRIPTION: Lexicon has 60 items grouped into nine subtests. Each subtest is homogeneous with respect to form and mode of work. The subject has to find the synonyms of specific words, complete sentences in a sensible way, find names for objects which have been defined or described, and find typical adjectival expressions of given nouns. Half of the items are in choice format and half are in open-ended format. All items are contained in one test booklet. The final outcome of the test is expressed in the form of three scores: total score, i.e., the sum of points of all correct answers, passive vocabulary score and active vocabulary score.

RELIABILITY: Estimated internal consistency – high for total score and slightly lower for active and passive vocabulary scores.

VALIDITY: Documented construct and concurent validity – significant correlations with Advanced Progressive Matrices.

NORMS: For adolescents aged 12;6 – 17;5 (Polish national sample).

APPLICATIONS: Research, school counselling, vocational counselling. The test may serve as a supplement of the Raven Progressive Matrices in assessment of intellectual level.
