The present study investigated the strategies involved in the Kohs Block Design task from a cognitive point of view. One purpose was to improve the classical distinction between syncretic and analytic strategies. An other goal was to determine whether subjects show the same strategies according to their field dependence level. Finally, we analysed the way the subjects described their own strategies in order to assess their metacognitive skills.

The Kohs Block Design Tests, published by Stoelting, are performance tests, standardized to measure intelligence for individuals with developmental ages Its easy-to-give-and-understand instructions were designed to be given in pantomime, so the tests are especially valuable for testing those with language and hearing handicaps. In addition, the Kohs Block Design Test has been used extensively in research, when an efficient measure of executive functioning skills is desired that is relatively language free.
The Kohs is particularly suited for use with disadvantaged and non-English speaking individuals, whose language deficits may mask underlying cognitive potential. Block design tests are significantly less affected by school training than Binet, yet possess a high degree of correlation and reliability.
The test, which has shown a universal appeal to children, and even adults, consists of 16 colored cubes and 17 cards with colored designs, which the subject is to duplicate.

The Kohs block test, or Kohs block design test, is a cognitive test for children or adults with a mental age between 3 and It is mainly used to test persons with language or hearing handicaps but also given to disadvantaged and non-English-speaking children. The child is shown 17 cards with a variety of colored designs and asked to reproduce them using a set of colored blocks. Performance is based not just on the accuracy of the drawings but also on the examiner's observation of the child's behavior during the test, including such factors as attention level, self-criticism, and adaptive behavior such as self-help, communication, and social skills. The Kohs block test is sometimes included in other tests, such as the Merrill-Palmer and Arthur Performance scales. McCullough, Virginia.
Analysis of problem solving strategies on the Kohs block design test
Kohs block design test
The test taker must, using 16 colored cubes , replicate the patterns displayed on a series of test cards. The design of the test was motivated by a belief that the test could easily be administered to persons with language or hearing disabilities. The test was developed in by psychologist Samuel C. Kohs — , a student of Lewis Terman ,  building on earlier and similar designs such as Francis N. Maxfield's Color Cube Test.
