On the basis of such information his/her task is to replace one or more question marks (?) which represent the missing INPUTS, OPERATORS or OUTPUTS with one of the proposed solutions.
Sample item 2
In this type of test item the testee is presented with diagrams showing effects of operators (rules) on various abstract shapes. Testee’s task is to derive a function of individual operators from these diagrams at first and then, based on this knowledge, substitute question marks (?) which represent the missing OUTPUTS by one of the offered solutions.
