The Slosson Intelligence Test-R3 provides a quick, reliable index of intellectual ability in children and adults, including those who are visually impaired or blind. Widely used in schools, clinics, and industry, the SIT-R3 has been designed to be used by a vast variety of educational administrators. Administrators specifically considered in this revision include teachers, principals, guidance counselors, special education and learning disability teachers, psychologists, psychometrics, and social workers who often need to evaluate an individual’s mental ability.
It has been constructed so that the administration and scoring of the test occur simultaneously, thus enabling the test to be given in a brief period of time. Although the SIT-R3 cannot be administered to groups, individual administration overcomes shortcomings of other group tests. Unlike some other group tests, the SIT-R3 does not penalize individuals who are extra careful, methodical, fearful and easily upset under the pressure of speed, poorly motivated, uncooperative, misunderstanding the importance of the task at hand, or have reading handicaps. All of the domains within the Slosson Intelligence Test were strengthened.
Six Verbal Cognitive Domains Tested in the SIT-R3 include:
1. General Information (GI) – containing 29 items, this domain reflects the learning of cultural knowledge, much of which is not explicitly or directly taught.
2. Comprehension (CO) – containing 33 items, this cognitive domain reflects one’s knowledge of social behavior, “common sense” and ability to interpret sayings and proverbs.
3. Quantitative (QN) – containing 34 items, this domain reflects the ability to do mental calculations, remember the essential numbers, determine the arithmetic process required to calculate the correct answers.
4. Similarities and Differences (SD) – containing 30 items, this cognitive area reflects one’s skill in determining common attributes of two dissimilar things or concepts and some uncommon attributes.
5. Vocabulary (VO) – containing 33 items, this area reflects the ability to use, understand and define words orally. Communication skills are dependent on vocabulary ability.
6. Auditory Memory (AM) – containing 28 items, this cognitive area reflects one’s ability to remember and repeat correctly a random series of digits, both forward and backward, as well as several sentences.
After administering the SIT-R3, Comparisons can then be made with other tests yielding category standard scores on the verbal side.
Areas Improved in the SIT-R3:
• Distribution of items are more even throughout the six verbal cognitive domains
• Test items use contemporary language and are free of demographic, racial, or sex bias
• Standardization sample is larger, reflecting a stratification consistent with the U.S. Census
• Validity and Reliability studies are more comprehensive
• The deviational Intelligence Quotient (IQ) is extended to a Total Standard Score (TSS)
Based on a sample of approximately 2,000 individuals, norms are presented in intervals of three months for ages 4.0 through 17.11 years, with one normative group for ages 18 years and above. The SIT-R3 overall score is reported as a Totals Standard Score (TSS) with a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 16. Percentile ranks, mean age equivalents, T-scores, Normal Curve Equivalents (NCEs), and stanines are also provided.
