Application

Adaptive assessment of lexical knowledge and respondent’s self-estimate of their ability.
General ability tests are good predictors of success in work or training. The assessment of crystallized intelligence is therefore central to the creation of cognitive ability profiles in the context of queries in the field of personnel psychology.

Administration

Each item requires respondents to state whether they are familiar with a particular word. By selecting an answer from a set of options the respondent then fills in the gaps in a text to provide a meaningful definition of the word.

Test forms

S1: Short form
S2: Standard form
S3: Long form – increased measurement precision
S5: Bi-adaptive form
S11: Easy linear form
S12: Difficult linear form

Scoring

The following main variables are scored:

  • Lexical knowledge: Measure of general intelligence – indicator of education and socialization.
  • Pretended knowledge: Tendency to assess one’s own capability.
