The purpose of the present research was normalizing the Raven Coloure Progressive Matricies Test (RCPM) as a general intelligence test on 7-11 year old students in the city of Ahvaz, who were randomly selected, in age groups 7, 8, 9,10, and 11 (1956). Test-retest reliability coefficients (2 weeks interval) in the whole sample and in each age group. Was significant Also, there was a significant correlation between RCPM scores with Good enough-Harris Draw Scale in the whole sample and in the 8 to 11 year old (convergent validity). Factor analysis of variance showed that there is significant differences between 7-11 years old of students in RCPM Test (P< 0/00(1), and there is not significance but the difference between girls and boys in RCPM is not significant. Analysis of normative data suggests that the Raven Colour Progressive Matrices Test are developmentally sensitive measures. In addition, nonnative findings (percentile ranks and standard scores) indicated that general intelligence and intellectual abilities Iranian children is similar to children in the United Kingdom Britanian children.
