Dear Student,

Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. I hope this solution finds you well. In this particular task you are being asked to present an intelligence assessment. There are a number to choose from but which one should you present? I suggest something essential but commonly used like the RPM or Raven's progressive Matrics. I therefore suggest this outline:

This outline should yield 300 words which I think should cover what you need. Good luck with your studies.
