X-Test 1st norm (September 2010):

Scores (26):

12≤raw score<14 X
14≤raw score<16
16≤raw score<18 XX
18≤raw score<20 XX
20≤raw score<22 XXX
22≤raw score<24 XXX
24≤raw score<26 XXXOO
26≤raw score<28 XXXXXO
28≤raw score<30 XO
30≤raw score<32 XO
raw score≥32

*O ≡ second submission
**The raw scores below 12 are not included

The raw-scoresIQ scores conversion formula, based on 21 firsts submissions


(taking only into account high IQ people – IQ 130+ s.d. 15 -), is the following:

Theoretical IQ := raw score * 1.8602 + 99.626

Raw scores mean = 23.16


The adjusted z-scores mean (142.95) – the z-scores mean rounded down by a specific
coefficient - has been set as the mean of the test.
The adjusted PSD(X-Test)/RSD(X-Test)≈1,8602 [1].

Correlation (r) with other well known high-range tests:

Get-y (9): 0.6419


Kvociento (6): 0.6548
CFNSE (5): 0.7784
916 test (4): 0.9394
Mysterium IV (4): 0.8429
Logima Strictica (3): 0.9759
CCAT (3): 0.6363
SLSE-I (3): 0.4514

I’ve marked the tests with 5+ pairs, because the “r” coefficient isn’t reliable under that number
(I have published the other values only for a generic discussion).

This result seems to indicate a quite strong correlation with divergent thinking
oriented tests, while it is surprising the low correlation with the numerical tests (like
the SLSE-I), even if it’s possible that this is a consequence of the very small
statistical population (only 3 testee).
Mixed items tests and g-loaded ones, show a correlation around 0.6-0.7, that could be
interpreted through the diversity between the intrinsic structure of the kind of items
inside them.

In conclusion, the X-Test is a divergent thinking logical test and not an ordinary
numerical one. The g-factor decreases with the IQ growth, so this result could be seen
as an empirical demonstration of this point of view.
