The Raven’s Progressive Matrices Test is a standard test of human intelligence consisting only of visual analogy problems.  I will describe a series of techniques that use only iconic representations to address problems on the Raven’s test. I will present results indicating that the iconic techniques yield results comparable to traditional symbolic models. I will discuss the implications of these results for computational psychometrics, computational accounts of human cognition including cognition in autism, and multimodal multilevel architectures for intelligent agents.
