Group Embedded Figures Test


Karp, S. A., Oltman, P. K., Raskin, E., & Witkin, H. A.




The Embedded Figures Test is a perceptual test. The subject's task on each trial is to locate a previously seen simple figure within a larger complex figure which has been so organized as to obscure or embed the sought-after simple figure. In the strictest interpretation, therefore, scores in the EFT reflect extent of competence at perceptual dis-embedding. The Embedded Figures Test, an individually administered test originally developed twenty years ago for use with subjects from ten years to old age, has two modifications: 1) the Children's Embedded figures Test, also individually administered, is intended for use in the five-to-ten-year age range; and 2) the Group Embedded Figures Test, is group administered, and may be used over a broad age range.
