Revised and restandardized, this enduring test offers a brief yet robust measure of intelligence and includes updated norms, an expanded age range, and a nonverbal Block Patterns scale.
Get a straightforward and brief measure of intellect
- Like the original, the Shipley-2 measures two aspects of cognition: crystallized knowledge, which is gained through education and experience, and fluid reasoning, the capacity to use logic to learn and acquire new information or solve problems.
- Ideal when you need to obtain quick ability estimates, screen for cognitive dysfunction, or qualify participants for research studies. It also functions well as a component of more complex assessments in neuropsychological, clinical, and forensic settings.
- Use for intake screening, assessing brain injuries, determining eligibility for disability benefits, measuring the effects of toxic exposure, guiding treatment and rehabilitation, informing educational or job placement decisions, identifying cognitive problems, and monitoring cognitive decline.
Retains simplicity but expands utility
- The new Block Patterns scale, which assesses fluid ability, is composed of 12 multiple-choice items based on the Kohs cube designs and offers a good alternative to the Abstraction scale.
- Norms are stratified by age for children (ages 7-19 years) and adults (ages 17-89 years) and based on a sample of 2,826 individuals representative of the U.S. population in terms of ethnicity, gender, and educational level.
- Optional unlimited-use computer software enables you to administer the Shipley-2 on-screen and rapidly score responses from paper-and-pencil and/ or on-screen administrations.
- Provides standard scores, percentiles, age equivalents, and confidence intervals as well as a Composite score, which is reflective of overall cognitive ability, and the Impairment Index, which represents the discrepancy between vocabulary and abstract thinking and is calculated only for adults.
