The present study aimed to assess the quality analysis of psychological tests done by psychologists, as well to verify their agreement. Six psychologists and 14 psychology graduate students participated on this study. Both subject groups evaluated four tests using an instrument of assessment of psychological tests, allowing a comparison between them and an evaluation of each group. The participants’ answers were correlated with the right answers using the Pearson’s test. The results showed a good internal consistency, and only in one test, the graduate students’ evaluation was better than the psychologists’ one.
