The Reynolds Intellectual Screening Test - Second Edition (RIST-2) was developed to provide a quick and reliable screening measure of general cognitive aptitude.
Derived from the updated Reynolds Intellectual Assessment Scales - Second Edition (RIAS-2) subtests, the RIST-2 retains the same two subtests as the original RIST: Guess What, a verbal subtest, which is a traditional measure of crystallized intelligence; and Odd-Item Out, a nonverbal subtest, which focuses on fluid intelligence.
The RIST-2 is ideal for identifying individuals who may need a more comprehensive assessment of intelligence in a variety of settings, and can also be useful in clinical and school practice when a global estimate of intelligence is all that is needed.
- Validity of the RIST-2 was assessed in studies with stroke, dementia, hearing impairment, traumatic brain injury, intellectual disability disorder, ADHD, learning disability, and gifted clinical groups. The RIST-2 can effectively identify individuals with an intellectual impairment
- Correlations between the RIST-2 index and RIAS-2 subtests were .84 and .87, respectively, for Guess What and Odd-Item Out
