Abstract

The present study is an attempt to revalidate and develop normative data on a non-verbal test of intelligence-Seguin Form Board (SFB). The SFB was administered on a sample of 720 children including 361 boys and 359 girls between age group of 36–120 months (Mean Age: 89.19 months; SD: 20.82) drawn from rural and urban areas and belonging to different social economic status groups. Results indicate that SFB continues to remain a valid and reliable speed test of intelligence at lower age levels of children. However, there is need to evolve separate norms on SFB for different age groups, socio-economic status levels, and area of residence (rural and urban) respectively. An attempt is also made in this study to demonstrate a modified procedure of test performance as relatively more appropriate, superior and effective for estimation of mental ages/IQ of children on this test.
