BAUMGARTL, Viviane de Oliveira  and  NASCIMENTO, Elizabeth do. The Bateria de Provas de Raciocínio (BPR-5) applied to an organizational context. PsicoUSF [online]. 2004, vol.9, n.1, pp. 1-10. ISSN 1413-8271.

This study shows the results of a test-norms establishment research for the Bateria de Provas de Raciocínio (BPR-5) and the investigation of relations between demographic and occupational variables and the performance of employees on the battery. The test-norms were established specifically for employees of the electricity sector of an energy company when the psychological assessment process was reintroduced. The sample consisted of 57 employees who had achieved high school at least. Because of that, only the B type of the battery was used in the research. The results showed significative relations among the age, schooling and general performance on the battery. Therefore, the importance of establishing test-norms for the company became evident, since the organizational sample shows peculiar characteristics when compared to the original study sample of the battery.
