Measure the student's reasoning in Figure Classification. The student receives shapes or figures that have a relationship with each other and must determine how these figures are alike. For example, a student receives pictures of four circles, each filled with a different color. The student must choose the correct specific relationship from choices like circles, colored circles, red circles or green circles. The correct answer would be colored circles, because it meets both criteria for the shapes: they are circles and they are colored.
Measure the student's reasoning in Figure Analogies. The student receives shapes or figures that are related in some way and must determine how an additional shape or figure is related in the same way to one of the answers. For example, the student receives a large circle with a smaller circle inside of it and a large square. The student must choose the correct relationship by choosing from choices like small circle, small square and small triangle. The correct answer would be the small square, because a small circle inside a large circle has the same relationship as a small square inside a large square.
Measure the student's reasoning in Figure Analysis. The student receives a diagram which shows a piece of folded paper with holes punched in it and must determine what the paper will look like when it is unfolded. For example, a piece of paper is folded in the middle from left to right and a hole is punched in the lower right corner. The correct answer would be that when unfolded, the paper would have a hole in the bottom left and bottom right corners.
