Outcomes of a normative and reliability study on the Raven's Coloured Progressive Matrices (CPM) are reported for a sample of 618 children from Victoria Australia ranging in age from 6.00 to 11.92 years.

The CPM demonstrated good inter-item consistency and split-half reliability across the age levels. However, item analysis together with the reliability analyses indicated that the number of items in the CPM could be reduced without detriment to the test's reliability. The psychometric properties of the CPM are discussed and the norms are compared to previou..
