Ravens progressive coloured matrices


Does anyone know how to interpret or can explain the scores from this test , and its purpose ?

My daughter has been assessed at school as she is autistic, and has had several tests, most of which gave an age level for each , but the ravens test was just numbers and centile score

Thanks

as far as I know it's a test of general ability, kind of like an IQ test? one that doesn't need any language, reading or writing skills. I don't have a clue about how to interpret the scores though. who administered it? did they not go through what the scores meant with you?

I spent hours googling it and found one example of the exact score my daughter got and it would suggest she is above average - which is apparently common for autistic kids in this particular test. The woman who did the test is the area senco coordinator and I haven't met her. I have spoken to the headteacher about giving parents reports that aren't written in layman's terms!

I was trying to find out more about it for you and I read a research article that said children with autism do perform better at it generally! didn't find anything else to help you though you would honestly think they'd interpret it for you, how annoying
