ROSA, Helena Rinaldi; PIRES, Maria Laura Nogueira; ALVES, Irai Cristina Boccato  and  ESTEVES, Cristiano. Standardization study of the R-2: Non Verbal Intelligence Test for Children. Bol. - Acad. Paul. Psicol. [online]. 2013, vol.33, n.85, pp. 373-387. ISSN 1415-711X.

This study presents the standardization of the R-2 Non Verbal Intelligence Test for Children conducted at the city of Assis - SP, Brazil, and compares it with the São Paulo city standardization. The sample was composed by 559 children, between 5 and 11 years old, half of each sex, students from Assis city, randomly selected according to their proportion in private and public schools. Results indicate differences between ages and school types, but not between sexes. Percentile norms were established for the total sample at each age. The comparison of Assis and São Paulo city children reveals significant differences and Assis' results slightly higher. The conclusion is that R-2 Test is appropriate to cognitive assessment of Assis children, suggesting the use of new norms for this region.
