The Advance Figure Intelligence Scale was constructed to measure the intelligence of an individual. Furthermore the test aimed to:
Help students determine their I. Q. Level. Those who have obtained high I.Q. does not emphasize intellectual superiority, but rather for the assessment of their logical thinking. Additionally, teachers or professors must develop special activities or programs that will enable the student to improve his or her problem solving ability in a logical manner.
Serve as psychodiagnosis in clinical setting, to determine the intellectual capacity of a client or patient who has mental and behavioral problems.
Help the human resource officer or managers to identify the best productive employees, by determining their logical ability. A person who thinks logically can solve problems in a more accurate manner.
Teachers. This will give them the basic information regarding the logical intelligence of their students.
The researchers applied the stanine method to establish the norms of the scale. Stanine scale ( Murphy & Davidshofer, 1998) is a commonly used statistical means of interpreting scores and is dependent on the assumption that the measured trait is distributed normally in the general population, so that a graphic representation of the distribution would closely approximate the so-termed “bell-shaped curve.” In a normal raw-score distribution, the greatest number of cases is focused on the middle while the remaining cases are distributed symmetrically on either side, decreasing as the distance from the center becomes greater. It follows that, within the limits imposed by a particular raw-score distribution, transformed stanine scores can be expected to conform to the proportions of this normal curve with a permanent percent of cases falling within each of the nine classifications, as illustrated below:
