The inter-subject/intra-subject subtest patterns (profiles) of the same sample of gifted children were examined based on factors found in a previous study of the Raven Coloured Progressive Matrices Test (CPM) that investigated structural properties with specific application to a sample of gifted children. The sample consisted of 166 children (78 females and 88 males) aged 37 months to 137 months who had been observed to be performing at accelerated levels of ability. An examination of the CPM subtests derived from the three factors identified in an earlier study confirms the impression that the CPM is an internally consistent measure that seems to assess one trait with three potentially related facets. The CPM appears to have three identifiable visual-spatial abilities, and children do show intra-individual variations in the subtest pattern, although in most cases the variation is not excessive. Findings with these gifted children are consistent with those for a sample of normal children. Ten tables present study data. (SLD)
