Raven's Progressive Matrices:

is a nonverbal group test typically used in educational settings. It is usually a 60-item test used in measuring abstract reasoning and regarded as a non-verbal estimate of fluid intelligence. source

Where can one find adult norms for Raven's progressive matrices?

For instance, how can I find the percentile for a raw score of 56 out of 60 for a 36 year old caucasian male?

    $\begingroup$ Hi, welcome at CogSci. Could you perhaps explain a bit more about tool you are using? How does it work and where do you use it for? Also a reference to the tool would be much appreciated. The more context you provide, the better people will be able to give an answer :) $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 9, 2016 at 20:32
  • $\begingroup$ I added a little comment. Raven's is arguably the most common measure of g when only a single test is used. $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 11, 2016 at 5:02

You would need to obtain a copy of the test manual. It includes norm tables for different groups.

If you Google it you might be able to find out where to purchase a copy

Equally, many psychology departments have test libraries and they are likely to have a copy.

It's also possible that some journal articles that have used Raven's could provide a rougher approximation to actual test norms.
