LAROS, Jacob Arie; ALMEIDA, Gabriel Olimpio Nascimento de; VALENTINI, Felipe  and  LIMA, Renata Manuelly Feitosa de. Dimensionality and convergent validity evidence of the SON-R 6-40. Temas psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.23, n.4, pp.929-945. ISSN 1413-389X.

This article presents evidence of the factor structure and of the convergent validity of the SON-R 6-40 (Snijders-Oomen Non-Verbal Intelligence Test - Revised), a nonverbal test of intelligence for persons with ages between 6 and 40 years. The test was administered together with two other tests of intelligence: form A of the Bateria de Provas de Raciocínio (BPR-5) and the SON-R 2½7[a] (for children 2.5 to 7 years). In this study 112 students of public schools in the Distrito Federal of Brazil participated. Factor analysis indicated the unidimensionality of the SON-R 6-40 scores. The correlation between the SON-R 6-40 and the BPR-5 was .74 (N =68) and between the SON-R 6-40 and the SON-R 2½7[a] was .80 (N =44). These results indicate satisfactory evidence of the convergent validity of the SON-R 6-40 for the investigated age range.

Keywords : Nonverbal test of intelligence; convergent validity; SON-R 6-40.
