dc.description.abstract The reliability and validity of the Paper and Pencil Games Level 3 (PPG) were investigated for a group of Xhosa-speaking pupils. The predictive validity of the PPG was investigated by running stepwise multiple regression analyses with the verbal, non-verbal and total scales of the PPG as predictor variables and the school subjects as criterion variables. The total score as obtained on the PPG was the best predictor of achievement in the following subjects: English, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History and Health Science. The verbal score was the best predictor of achievement in Afrikaans. The non-verbal score was the best predictor of achievement in Xhosa. The internal consistency for the verbal, non-verbal and total scales was calculated by means of Cronbach's coefficient alpha. From the reliability analyses it was clear that the reliability coefficient for the non-verbal scale was much higher than for the verbal scale. Local norms were also calculated for use in conjunction with the national norms. en
