In 1977–1978, my class of fifth and sixth graders showed average gains of 18 to 24 months in reading, language and math, as measured by the CTBS. There are five major levels in the Raven’s Advanced Matrices Test, roughly equivalent to 130+ IQ, 120+, 90-110, 75-90, 75-, On this test, almost every child moved up one level. This has never occurred with such dramatic differences in 10 years of using the Matrices which I have found to be the most culture-fair general indicator of intelligence.
