Kohs block
Explanation:
The Kohs Block test is a performance test designed to measure intelligence. The test taker must, using 16 colored cubes, replicate the patterns displayed on a series of test cards. Because the instructions are easily communicated, the test can be administered to language or hearing handicaps.

The test was fleshed out by sociologist Samuel C. Kohs, around 1923[citation needed], building on earlier and similar designs.
