Mean correlation: 0.38

Used for norming are all that correlate .74 or higher. Prior scores are converted to the same scale (SD=15) if needed. Raw and prior scores are put in columns of numerical order, the highest facing the highest etc. Each raw score is normed at the median of the IQ's facing it. Scores above 28 are extrapolated. [March 2008 the IQ norms were converted to protonorms using the initial protonorm formula.]

Robustness and overall test quality

Item analysis

Item statistics are not published as that would help future candidates. To detect bad items, answers and comments from candidates are studied, as well as, for each problem, the correlation with total score (validity of the item in this test) and the proportion of candidates getting it wrong (hardness of the item). Possible bad items are removed or revised, resulting in a revised version of the test.
