The Coloured Progressive Matrices is one version of Raven's Progressive Matrices (also Abstract Reasoning Test) are widely used non-verbal intelligence measure. In each test item, one is asked to find the missing pattern in a series. Each set of items gets progressively harder, requiring greater cognitive capacity to encode and analyze. The test is considered by many intelligence experts to be one of the most g-loaded in existence.

The matrices are offered in three different forms for different ability levels, and for age ranges from five through adult:

  • Coloured Progressive Matrices (younger children and special groups)
  • Standard Progressive Matrices (average 6 to 80 year olds)
  • Advanced Progressive Matrices (above average adolescents & adults)
