Abstract

Raven's Advanced Progressive Matrices test is one of the most frequently used measures of individual differences in cognitive processing. However, much disagreement exists over the cognitive components responsible for performance and the test is often used to represent a diverse set of constructs including g, inductive ability, spatial ability, pattern perception, and nonverbal intelligence. This research used the verbal overshadowing paradigm to experimentally determine whether performance across all items on the Advanced Progressive Matrices is dependent on the same cognitive processes. The results clearly indicated that a subset of items were dependent on visuospatial processes, whereas another subset of items required verbal-analytic processes.
