RUEDA, Fabián Javier Marín; SOUSA, Vanessa de; SANTOS, Acácia Aparecida Angeli dos  and  NORONHA, Ana Paula Porto. Bender - Score Graduate System (B-SPG): study for screening version. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2016, vol.18, n.2, pp. 117-128. ISSN 1516-3687.

The B-SPG was proposed as a correction system for the Bender Test in 2005. The aim of this study was to determine, if, with a set lower figures, is possible to get a measure of evaluation of perceptual motor skills equivalent to the original purpose of this system. Participated in this study 787 children, with ages ranging from 6 to 10 years (M = 8.18, SD = 1.33). Through an exploratory factor analysis, the items were checked with larger loads factorials, considering the sets of figures formed by dots and circles, straight lines and angles and curved lines. From there, was a regression analysis, finding that the set of three figures, 3, 4 and 7, explained 80% of the variance of the total B-SPG score. The value of the alpha coefficient was 0.74. It can be said that this set of figures proved appropriate. However, studies are needed to investigate the relationship with other variables, which confirms the psychometric adequacy of this set of items.
