The DMI assesses intellectual potential.

DESCRIPTION: The DMI consists of 192 items based on pictorial, geometrical, numeral and verbal material. The child is required to complete classes or series of stimuli, create them by analogy or by means of logical multiplication. The items are collected in two booklets, one for classes and one for relations. The subject always selects the correct answer from four options.

RELIABILITY: Satisfactory internal consistency.

VALIDITY: Significant correlations with Standard Progressive Matrices, General Classification Test and school grades; established construct validity.

NORMS: Tentative standard ten norms for children aged 10-14; means and standard deviations for children aged 8 and 12 and for adults are also provided.

APPLICATIONS: The DMI may be used instead of, or in addition to, an intelligence test. The scores provide qualitative information about the level of development of mental operations and about variation of intellectual proficiency depending on the type of material (profile assessment). The DMI may be used in the course of corrective interventions and interventions stimulating thought processes.
