Acta Neurol Scand. 1993 Jul;88(1):70-4. doi: 10.1111/j.1600-0404.1993.tb04190.x.


Raven's Colored Progressive Matrices Test (RCPM) was administered to 894 normal healthy adults who were randomly selected in six Italian cities and in the Republic of San Marino. Gender, age, and education significantly influenced overall test performance, and performance on different RCPM subsets. Findings from this large random sample provide demographic corrections to test scores for use in clinical practice.
