Raven’s SPM is a nonverbal assessment tool designed to measure an individual’s ability to perceive and think clearly, make meaning out of confusion, and formulate new concepts when faced with novel information. It has been used world-wide for more than 70 years.

The SPM score indicates a candidate’s potential for success in such positions as supervisor, mid-level manager, or equivalent technical or professional positions in an organisation. These categories of positions typically require clear and accurate thinking, problem identification, holistic situation assessment, and evaluation of tentative solutions for consistency with all available information. The SPM score also can be used for developmental purposes in occupational and educational settings. The nonverbal nature the SPM minimises the impact of language skills on performance on the assessment.
