A practical test enabling to quickly get a general view of the crystallized intelligence level. The perfect addition to Raven’s Matrices or Cattell’s Culture Fair “g” Test.

The TRS-S version, the simpler one – is intended for the general population, the TRS-Z version, the more difficult one - for people with above average intelligence.

DESCRIPTION: The test measures vocabulary which can be understood as an indicator of verbal skills and general intelligence. The tasks are closed and consist in indicating synonyms of given words-stimuli. The S version consists of 32 tasks, the Z version – 30.

RELIABILITY: High internal consistency and stability indices for both test versions.

VALIDITY: Confirmed for both versions by correlations with scores of fluid intelligence tests and scores of verbal skills test. In case of the Z version, there are confirmed correlations with other crystallized intelligence measures and language interests, and an increase of scores  with the age and education level.
