Abstract

This study assesses non-verbal cognitive ability of South Sudanese refugee children, using the Colored Progressive Matrices (CPM) test. The sample consisted of 1856 South Sudanese children living in Khartoum State ranging from 6 to 12 years of age. Mean scores were very low when scaled to the IQ metric according to British 2007 norms. Importantly, group administration produced far lower scores than individual administration of the test.
