The characteristics of the Domino 48 were tested on primary school (N = 487) and high school students (N = 512). The characteristics of the Domino 70 were examined for a group of high school students (N = 259) and adults in personnel selection (N = 704). A comparison of the two tests revealed the suitability of the D-70 items for a more educated population. The comparison of the facture structure revealed that the total explained variance is higher on the D-48 test, where it is possible to isolate three factors (eduction, symbolic reasoning and perspective reasoning) which explain 32.2% of the total variance. Two factors were isolated on the D-70 test (eduction and symbolic reasoning) which explain 19.6% of the total variance.
