Details

Holzinger and Swineford (1939) data is widely cited, but generally only the Grant-White School data is used. The present dataset contains the complete data of Holzinger and Swineford (1939).

A total number of 301 pupils, coming from Paster School and Grant-White School, who participated in Holzinger and Swineford's (1939) study. This study consists of 26 tests, which are used to measure the participants' spatial, verbal, mental speed, memory, and mathematical ability.

The spatial tests consist of t1_visual_perception, t2_cubes, t3_paper_form_board, t4_lozenges. Additional spatial tests are t25_paper_form_board_r (revised test 3) and t26_flags. t25_paper_form_board_r can (potentially) be used as a substitute for t3_paper_form_board. t26_flags is thought to be a possible substitute for t4_lozenges.

The verbal tests consist of t5_general_information, t6_paragraph_comprehension, t7_sentence, t8_word_classification, and t9_word_meaning.

The speed tests consist of t10_addition, t11_code, t12_counting_groups_of_dots, and t13_straight_and_curved_capitals.

The memory tests consist of t14_word_recognition, t15_number_recognition, t16_figure_recognition, t17_object_number, t18_number_figure, and t19_figure_word.

The mathematical-ability tests consist of t20_deduction, t21_numerical_puzzles, t22_problem_reasoning, t23_series_completion, and t24_woody_mccall.
