Evaluation is a necessary process for different fields, much more when it comes to the level of intelligence
The assessment of intelligence has become essential for the determination of academic and even work success, something that has traditionally been assessed by written and problem-solving tests, where the verbal component plays a role Interest.
Despite the foregoing, some theorists have criticized the close relationship between the execution of the test of intelligence and the linguistic Desrarollo of the evaluated, indicating that in some cases the evaluation may be confusing, since a linguistic development Limited will result in a "poor" results in C.I. Without such an aspect necessarily have to correspond with reality.
To overcome the previous limitations, intelligence tests have emerged that dissociate themselves from linguistic development and assess the level of intelligence, among these tests is the recently revised and published non-Verbal intelligence Test (G-R Factor) by T.E.A. Ediciones.

Characteristics of Factor G-R
It has been designed to obviate the influences of cultural learning or social context in the assessment of intelligence, and provides an index on the ability to understand and relate complex ideas, work with abstract content, extract Conclusions by deductive or inductive methods and solve novel problems.
The test is structured in four tests:
-Series Test, which presents incomplete and progressive series to be solved.
-Classification Test, where you have to identify the different figure of a set of five.
-Matrix Test, where you have to complete a frame or matrix with the option that fits.
-Conditions Test, where you have to select the right choice of four alternatives.
The application of the same can be done both individually and collectively, taking approximately 30 minutes in its realization.
The correction of the same is done by means of both schoolchildren (from 4 º of primary to 2 º of baccalaureat) as of adults.
Benefits of the G-R Factor
This test provides a direct score that is "translated" to determine the IQ, as well as the percentile where the level of intelligence of the person is located, knowing that scores from 85 to 115 are considered with "normal" intelligence, 115 to 130 high intelligence, and greater than 130 very high intelligence; On the other end, between 70 to 85 is considered low intelligence and less than 70 very low intelligence.
Also this test is intended for application both in the school, human resources and even clinical, being the scales by age and its solid psychometric foundation its highlights.

G-R Factor Limitations
Despite the above advantages, this test follows the model of intelligence assessment as a single construct, hence providing a general index (G Factor), not taking into account the latest contributions on multiple intelligences or the Emotional intelligence.
Also this test, despite being available the online correction of it, can not be done telematically, so it requires an evaluator to carry it out.
