ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to compare the results of Raven SPM intelligence test of the hearing impaired adolescents. The assessment values were analyzed according to the IQ under the Korean SPM standard score. A population of 115 adolescents with hearing impaired was evaluated using Raven SPM test. To compare the item correct ratio, the 24 matched normal adolescents was also assessed by the same test. Results of this study were as follows; first, the hearing impaired adolescents generally showed 10 points lower than the Korean SPM standard score. But the group of age 15 did not show the IQ difference though the standard deviation was a little higher. It probably told us that the eduction ability which the Raven test evaluated got to top level around age 15. Second, the correct ratio of the SPM items was not shown differently except two items. An item which needs some caution to find out the correct answer was advantageous to the hearing impaired adolescents. The other item which needs a little higher eduction ability was advantageous to the normal adolescents. There were no differences on the eduction ability over the IQ 110 adolescents with the hearing impaired. These results showed that the Raven SPM intelligence test could be resonable test for the hearing impaired adolescents.
