Development and Validation of a Persian Verbal Analogies Test Using the Rasch Model

Abstract : This study examines the validity of a 49-item verbal analogies test by the application of the Rasch model and concurrent validation procedure. The test was translated and modified by the researcher to be used for Iranian students. The test was administered to 186 Iranian undergraduates. The results indicated that the Rasch model fit the test after deleting eight items from the scale. Concurrent validation demonstrated that the test correlates significantly with other verbal and nonverbal fluid reasoning measures, and suggests that the instrument is potentially valid and useful as a measure of verbal analogical reasoning in the Persian language.
