Description The subtest for the identification of logical reasoning is part of the diagnostic system GIS – Invenio, which focuses on measuring fluid intelligence in primary school children. More specifically, the tool is designed for measuring induction (inductive reasoning) as one of the facets of logical reasoning. In the CHC framework, the induction is construed as the ability to discover in a set of different stimuli the underlying logical rule which determines the character of particular stimuli and/or their relative arrangement. The solver can subsequently appraise the validity of the rule that has been inferred this way. The subtest for the identification of logical reasoning (in the Invenio system the tool is also alternatively called “Glyfy and a mysterious script”) is a computer-administered method which makes use of the GBA paradigm: in order to increase motivation and lower test anxiety, the tasks are presented as a computer game, including the use of gamified features (graphical elaboration of the game environment, the presence of story characters etc.). In this particular game the player´s task is to help the main character – an archeologist named Glyfy – to decipher the script of an old, unknown civilization. Individual symbols, the components of the unknown script, are arranged in a fixed order (in lines or in matrices). By inferring the hidden rule(s), the player can add missing or, alternatively, exclude a surplus symbol. Given the computerized manner of administration, the test allows group on-line testing. The evaluation of the results is carried out by means of IRT model, based on the norms acquired during standardization with several hundred children in a number of regions in Czechia. Thanks to the incorporation of the subtest into the Invenio system, the users (parents, teachers, school psychologists) can compare the information on processing speed of the child with the data on his/her other important cognitive abilities.
