Application

Assesses logical reasoning as an indicator of general intelligence.
The ability to identify regularities and draw logical conclusions is a very good predictor of long-term success at work. The test is therefore used in recruitment (manufacturing & safety assessments). Use of the adaptive forms enables the respondent’s maximum performance to be identified without either over- or underchallenging him/her. Use of the linear form enables the time required for the test to be more accurately predicted. One test form of the AMT has been specially developed for use in the area of traffic psychology.

Administration

The respondent is shown a matrix of 3 x 3 cells. Eight of the cells contain abstract figures; the figure in the ninth cell must be filled in. The respondent needs to identify the rules on which the figures are based and then select the appropriate figure from the eight that are suggested.

Test forms

The four test forms differ in length, in the difficulty of the first item and in precision.
S1: Short form – provides a rough overview of ability
S2: Standard form
S3: Long form – increased measurement precision
S4: Linear test form
S5: Easy form without time limit
S6: Easy parallel form without time limit
S11: Traffic psychological short form – similar to S1, but with easier test start to prevent lowering of motivation
