PSYCHOMETRIC PROPERTIES OF RAVEN'S COLORED PROGRESSIVE MATRICES FOR OMANI CHILDREN AGED 5 THROUGH 11 YEARS
Abstract:The aim in this study was to identify Omani children's psychometric properties on the Raven's Colored Progressive Matrices (CPM; Raven, Court, & Raven, 1986; Raven, Raven, & Court, 1998), using a sample of 372 5- to 11-year-olds. Analysis of the data shows that the sample was distributed normally. The test demonstrated good validity and reliability indices and is considered to be a suitable measure to assess nonverbal intelligence of young Omani children. The authors recommend carrying out further studies comparing Omani children's performance with their counterparts from other countries and sociocultural backgrounds.
