This study aims to examine the validity of a fluid intelligence test, arranged based on the Cattel-Horn-Carroll theory. There are two sources of validity used in this study, which are evidence based on the internal structure and evidence based on relation with other variables. 64 items have been composed and trialed on 242 people. Data is analyzed using confirmatory factor analysis technique and correlation technique to examine test validity. The result of this study, shows that the prepared model works quite well in describing the narrow abilities of fluid intelligence, as showed by the receipt of fit indexes accuracy of the model, such as chi-square value 0:42 (p = 0518), Goodness Fit Index (GFI) = 1, and Rooted Mean Square Error (RMSEA) = 0.00. Similar result is also showed by its correlation with other variable (TIKI test) which is 0.717. This suggests that this fluid intelligence test has good validity.
