INSSVR Intelligence Structure Battery - Short Form R

M. Arendasy, L. F. Hornke & M. Sommer


Measures the level and structure of the intelligence in accordance with the Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) model, on the basis of three ability factors (fluid intelligence, crystallized intelligence, quantitative thinking).
The test provides a quick, global overview of the intelligence level. It is also an economic means of obtaining clarification on specific queries. It is used in Staff & Management Assessments in various occupational fields, in Manufacturing & Safety Assessments and in educational and career counseling for adolescents.

Answers are entered using a multiple-choice format. In the individual subtests the items are sometimes presented adaptively in the form of a power test and sometimes in linear form with a time limit. The three ability factors are assessed by means of the following subtests:

Logical reasoning:

  • Figural inductive reasoning: The ninth field of a 3x3 matrix of symbols must be filled with one of eight possible symbols in accordance with the underlying rules.

Verbal ability:

  • Word meaning: A synonym for a given word must be selected. The test uses a multiple-choice format.

Numerical ability:

  • Arithmetical flexibility: A given equation must be solved by inserting the correct arithmetical operations.

  • Verbal skills: Extent of vocabulary and the ability to retrieve knowledge from memory for problem solving.
  • Quantitative thinking: The ability to understand and apply mathematical skills and concepts for problem-solving purposes.
