DESCRIPTION: Test measures understanding of emotions – one of basic components of emotional intelligence. The emotional knowledge is treated as an ability indicator. The test consists of 30 tasks divided into 5 subtests containing 6 defined verbal tasks each. Results are calculated as a whole score, based on the number of correctly solved tasks.

RELIABILITY: Satisfactory stability and internal consistency.

VALIDITY: Confirmed e.g. by correlations with other measures of emotional intelligence, both test- and inventory-formatted, as well as anticipated score relations with some temperamental traits, behaviors of mothers experienced in the early school age, well-being and well-adjustment indices, differences in gender and study direction.

NORMS: Standard ten for three age groups: 15-18, 19-25, 26-above, separate for women and men.

APPLICATIONS: Thanks to high reliability, the TRE can be used in research and for individual assessment as well. Recommended for EI research – its nature, source, functional role. On the other hand, it can be useful as individual assessmenttool for individual assesment in family counseling – working with parents or in marital couple therapy. Furthermore, it can help in job counseling for students and adults, in choosing a career/education path. TRE can be also applied in selection/recruitment process. High TRE score may indicate abilities to work with people, whereas low score might signal social-emotional problems and a need for psychological training.
