SANTOS, Acácia A. Angeli dos; NORONHA, Ana Paula Porto  and  SISTO, Fermino Fernandes. R1-Forma B Intelligence Test and G36: evidences of convergent validity. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2005, vol.10, n.2, pp.191-197. ISSN 1678-4669.

Considering the relevance of obtaining trustful measurement for the evaluation of intelligence, this study aimed at verifying the convergent validity between the R1-Forma B and the G36 tests. 78 students of both gender (34,6% female and 65,4% male), aged from 15 to 64 years old (mean = 36,84; SD = 10,10) and attending to the high school Telecurso were studied. The results indicated a high correlation between tests (r = 0.80), what allowed for the statement that they measure similar constructs. Nevertheless, the hypothesis that G36 would be more correlated with Factor 2 of R-1 could not be confirmed. This information suggests that the G36 is not unidimensional and is more related to crystallized intelligence than the g factor.

Keywords : psychological assessment; psychometric testing; g factor; crystallized intelligence.
