This report is part of a general study of reference measures for cognitive and noncognitive factors. The main activity being reported is the development of factor-referenced or marker tests for several recently identified cognitive factors. A secondary activity involves the study of possible relationships to factors already established. Developmental activities include measures for improvement of the items in the tests, determination of reliabilities, and some clarification of these cognitive factors. Five newly identified factors are concept attainment, figural fluency, integrative processes, visual memory, and verbal closure. Established factors are figural adaptive flexibility, logical reasoning, general reasoning, number facility, spatial orientation, and speed of closure.
