Developed to provide a quick and reliable screening measure of general cognitive aptitude, the RIST-2 is ideal for identifying individuals who may need a more comprehensive assessment of intelligence in a variety of settings. The RIST-2 also can be useful in clinical and school practice when a global estimate of intelligence is all that is needed.
Derived from the updated RIAS-2 subtests, the RIST-2 retains the same two subtests as the original RIST: Guess What and Odd-Item Out. 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.
