C-12

Instructions

 

This questionnaire has been prepared with both culturally oriented and culture fair items.

One must take each part to be assessed. The four parts of the test are called According to, Relating to, Crossing to, and Following to. Each one consists in twenty-five items.

Every item counts 1 point, and there is no disadvantage for wrong answers, therefore maximum possible raw scores for the parts and the composite scale are 25 and 100 respectively. Although more than a single key may be possible, only one answer per question is permitted.

Questions are not arranged in ascending order of difficulty as arrangement has been randomly executed. Even if you do not find an answer, it is important that you continue by passing to the next question as it could be significantly easier.

For practical reasons, only one try to this test is accepted (no exception), please take your time to work, and submit your answers only after having given your best. The unique procedure for submitting answers is the use of the computerized form available on Episteme-Club.org.

Any assistance from other persons is strictly prohibited. However, you may use reference aids such as books for the verbal questions and a calculator for the numerical sequences.

Although the C-12 does not aim at measuring IQ, it has been seen to correlate relatively well (r = .69, p < .05) with the WAIS-III Verbal IQ in a small preliminary sample of 12 persons. Given the fact that the C-12 raw score reliability is .96, which is excellent, and assuming an average age of 35 years old, a correspondence table is provided hereafter.

prelim_norms

Correspondence tables for Verbal and Nonverbal scales are given below. Correlation between C-12 Verbal score and WAIS-III VIQ was .82 (p < .05) indicating a strong level of relationship. The nonverbal C-12 to IQ correspondence has been derived from reverse use of Tellegen and Briggs’ formula 4 (1967).

Score reliability is .94 for both the verbal part and the nonverbal part. This is seen as excellent.
