Raven’s Progressive Matrices is a leading global non-verbal measure of mental ability, helping to identify individuals with advanced observation and clear thinking skills who can handle the complexity and ambiguity of the modern workplace.

Raven’s offers information about an individual's:

  • Capacity for analysing and solving problems
  • Abstract reasoning, specifically high-level non-verbal reasoning abilities
  • Speed of accurate intellectual work
  • Learning potential

The APM is the most difficult version of the progressive matrices and was designed to assess high level non-verbal reasoning abilities and to enable assessment of the speed of accurate intellectual work. The APM is widely used in the areas of gifted education, management selection, and research. It contains 12 familiarisation problems (Set I) and 36 test items (Set II) arranged in order of increasing difficulty.
