The Slosson Intelligence Test – 4th Edition (SIT-4) is a quick, reliable screening measure of cognition for children and adults, including those who are visually impaired or blind. Used widely in schools, institutions, and hospitals the SIT-4 yields a Total Standard Score, charts category standard scores in the six subdomains tested, and compares ability to achievement when GE scores are below expected achievement levels. The six domains are:
General Information (GI): the learning of cultural knowledge, much of which is not explicitly or directly taught.
Comprehension (CO): the knowledge of social behavior, "common sense," and the ability to interpret sayings and proverbs.
Quantitative (QN): the ability to do mental calculations, remember essential numbers, and determine the arithmetic process required to calculate correct answers.
Similarities and Differences (SD): the skill in determining common attributes of two dissimiliar things or concepts and some uncommon attributes.
Vocabulary (VO): the ability to use, understand, and define words orally.
Auditory Memory (AM): the capability to remember and repeat correctly a random series of digits, both forward and backward, as well as several sentences.
The SIT-4 has been constructed so that the administration and scoring are measured simultaneously, enabling the test to be given in a brief period of time.
The SIT-4 is verbally administered so it does not penalize individuals who are methodical, fearful, or have reading handicaps.
The SIT-4 measures crystallized verbal intelligence verbally, making it ideal for those with visual impairments, reading disabilities, or other conditions.
