A non-verbal performance test of intelligence, useful with language and hearing impaired individuals S. Kohs Age Range: Developmental age years Time: Up to 40 minutes, individual administration The Kohs Block Design Tests, published by Stoelting, are performance tests, standardized to measure intelligence for individuals with developmental ages Its easy-to-give-and-understand instructions were designed to be given in pantomime, so the tests are especially valuable for testing those with language and hearing handicaps. In addition, the Kohs Block Design Test has been used extensively in research, when an efficient measure of executive functioning skills is desired that is relatively language free. The Kohs is particularly suited for use with disadvantaged and non-English speaking individuals, whose language deficits may mask underlying cognitive potential.

The technique is also used in tests of professional fitness and identification of intellectual potential. When working with children, the technique helps to form attention, and also develops spatial thinking from an early age. During the test, special cubes with colored edges are used, with their help it is necessary to perform various tasks. Complete with cubes are additionally used cards with the tasks specified in them.

The number of parts used in the test may vary, depending on the situation and the subject. The standard set has 16 parts, usually 9 are used when working with children. Print Kohs cubes with assignments. When conducting a test with children, the main task of the child is to fold the cubes on the pattern indicated on the card to form a certain pattern. The level of complexity of the patterns are different from each other and are given alternately in a predetermined sequence.

After testing is completed, the time spent on solving problems is taken into account. There are some recommendations for a more successful test when applying the technique: Before starting the test, it is necessary to study together all the elements, examine what color they are, and what task is indicated on the card; Before the child starts the task, it is necessary to ask how he will carry it out and in what sequence; A positive result is noted if during the assignment the child explains the sequence of actions; if difficulties arise in solving a task, it is necessary to prompt the correct decision or show how to do it; to achieve a positive solution, the number of exercises is not limited.

Previously, before the start of testing, it is possible to note a positive result, if the child tells or shows all the elements necessary to build the pattern. Features arising during the tests and their value: Difficulties arise in the course of the assignment, or the child cannot solve it at all even after the solution is shown - this indicates a deviation in visual coordination; The importance of the beginning and the choice of the first element - before starting the test, you need to carefully monitor: which cube was taken first, at what angle and color attention was paid, how long it took, and whether there were comparisons with other elements; In the process of performing the task, the subject is inattentive, cannot be determined in actions, uses non-standard methods of solution - the nature and degree of the personality is determined by these criteria; When performing a task, you must follow the movements and their number.

The minimum number of movements and perfect actions indicates a well-developed visual coordination, as well as a high ability of constructive thinking; When conducting a test, they use complicated tasks - these are tasks that cause difficulties in solving, unlike the others, and take more time, a similar technique is practiced to increase the level of abstract thinking; The phenomenon of ignoring - occurs in the process of performing the task and there may be two types.

In one case, the color is ignored and another is chosen instead of one; in the second, the image form is ignored; instead of the one specified in the task, the other is laid out. The test data is mainly used to determine constructive thinking, which in turn involves spatial analysis. According to the results of testing, you can identify a number of pathologies and mental disorders. The test results are stored in the clinic for a long time and are a priority indicator in the treatment of severe forms of mental disorders.



Hydrogen peroxide is unstable and slowly decomposes in the presence of nlock. This was necessarily the result of a deficiency in the number of cases at the higher ages. Its current campus is in Bishan. Design number 7 successfully completed in 1 minute and 23 seconds and at the end of 9 moves. A coordination network is a coordination compound extending, through repeating coordination entities, in one dimension, but with cross-links between two or more individual chains, loops, or spiro-links, or a coordination compound extending through repeating coordination entities in two or three dimensions; and finally a coordination polymer is a coordination compound with repeating coordination entities tesst in one, two, or three dimensions. Do the same for the other three colors. It has also been exported to text countries.
