Test of Nonverbal Intelligence-OUR PRICE: B12590-$296.00

Ages: 3-0 through 9-11
Testing Time: 5 to 15 minutes
Administration: Individual

The Primary Test of Nonverbal Intelligence (PTONI) is a theoretically sound, research-based method of assessing reasoning abilities in young children. Psychologists, diagnosticians, special educators, speech-language pathologists, and other professionals can use this test to identify both severe intellectual deficits and superior cognitive intelligence; help estimate future school success based on family history, educational background, and personality traits; and study a wide range of researchable topics and issues.
The PTONI was normed on a culturally and ethnically diverse demographic sample of 1,010 children, residing in 38 states. It is unbiased, quick, accurate, and cost-efficient. Testing takes approximately 5 to 15 minutes. Minimal oral directions and a pointing-response format make it one of the simplest and easily understood of all nonverbal intelligence tests designed for young children.

The nonverbal format of the PTONI is especially appropriate for testing children who typically are not verbally or motorically well  developed.  Furthermore, directions in eight alternative languages  are provide for the PTONI making it an appropriate assessment of   intelligence for children from diverse language backgrounds.

This test is composed of an Examiner’s Manual, a Picture Book with easel backing, and an Examiner Record Form.  The test format requires a child to look at a series of pictures on each page in the Picture Book and point to the one picture that does not belong with the others. Items are arranged in order of difficulty. Early items measure lower order reasoning (e.g., visual and spatial perception). Later items measure higher order reasoning abilities (e.g., analogical thinking, sequential reasoning, and categorical formulation). A child’s performance is recorded as a standard score (called the Nonverbal Index), a percentile rank, and an age equivalent.
Complete PTONI Kit Includes: Examiner’s Manual, Picture Book with Easel, and 25 Examiner/Record Forms, all in a sturdy storage box. (© 2008) B12590-$296.00

Testing Time: 1 hour
Administration: Individual

The CTONI-2 is a popular norm-referenced test that uses nonverbal formats to measure general intelligence of children and adults whose performance on traditional tests might be adversely affected by subtle or overt impairments involving language or motor abilities. The CTONI-2 measures analogical reasoning, categorical classification, and sequential reasoning, using six subtests in two different contexts: Pictures of familiar objects (e.g., people, toys, animals) and geometric designs (unfamiliar sketches and drawings). The six subtests are: (1) Pictorial Analogies, (2) Geometric Analogies, (3) Pictorial Categories, (4) Geometric Categories, (5) Pictorial Sequences, and (6) Geometric Sequences.

Results are reported as standard scores, percentile ranks, and age equivalents. The test was normed on a large (~2827) representative national sample that was stratified by age. The reliability coefficients of its composite are mostly in the .90s with a few in the high .80s. It correlates with most well known intelligence testing in the high .70s. Considerable other validity evidence is provided in the manual.

·     The overall look of the test has been updated and enhanced.

·     All new normative data were collected in 2007and 2008.

·     Floor effects have been eliminated.

·     Study of item bias has been expanded.

New oral instructions for common non-English languages in the United States have been provided.

The Test of Nonverbal Intelligence – Fourth Edition is a practical, easy-to-use, norm-referenced instrument that measures an individual’s intelligence. The administration and response format are pragmatic with simple oral instructions, requiring test takers to answer only with simple but meaningful gestures such as pointing, nodding, or blinking. This test is ideal for those who have language, hearing, or motor impairments, or are not familiar with mainstream American culture. Data was collected from a normative sample of 2,272 people residing in 33 states.

The TONI-4 has two equivalent forms: Form A and Form B. Each form consists of 60 items, all of which are abstract/figural (i.e., void of pictures or cultural symbols), thus educational, cultural, or experiential backgrounds will not adversely affect test results. All items are arranged in easy-to-difficult order. Each item contains one or more of the eight salient characteristics:

1.    shape

2.    position

3.    direction

4.    rotation

5.    contiguity

6.    shading

7.    size

8.    movement.

Easier items contain one or two characteristics while more difficult items contain several. Both forms can also be used for research purposes and periodic reevaluation.
