Statistics of Association and Analogies (French)

© Mar 2008 Paul Cooijmans

Remark: This was the verbal part of a French version of the Test For Genius. It has been taken out of use because there was very little interest in it, and because people would sometimes use it merely to compare it to the English version to gain some kind of advantage when taking the latter, without actually taking the French version itself. For the same reasons, the Netherlandic and German versions have been discontinued.

Used for norming are all of the known scores from tests correlating 0.35 or higher with this test, except for the scores on the separate Association and Analogies sections of the French Test For Genius of which the present test is composed, as those sections do not have norms in their own right. The used scores are if needed converted to protonorms using the relevant conversion formula or table. The raw scores on this test that form pairs with the used scores are rank-equated to the used scores, and where needed there is interpolation or extrapolation.

Ranking in above table is based on the unrounded correlations. All available data is present in this table, no tests are left out except for those with less than 2 score pairs. All known pairs are used to obtain the true, honest statistics; correlations are not artificially inflated by leaving out ceiling scores, outliers or other anomalies.
