The Hagen Matrices Tests are intelligence tests that are free for non-commercial use. The long-form HMT and the short form HMT-S are developed, validated, and established as web-based instruments. According to the Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) model of intelligence, they measure fluid intelligence (Gf). The latest versions of the tests were developed by Dr. Timo Heydasch and M. Sc. Sara Tsantidis.
