VENDRAMINI, Claudette Maria Medeiros  e  LOPES, Fernanda Luzia. Reading of psychological tests manuals by psychology students and professionals. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2008, vol.7, n.1, pp. 93-105. ISSN 1677-0471.

The increase of the psychometric studies proves to be in accelerated rhythm, with rigidities that promote and justify the safe use of the psychological tests, given the complexity in observing and measuring fragments of the human behavior. In this sense, the present study aimed to identify the difficulties and the reading differences associated to the topics of psychological evaluation and statistical information contained in manuals of psychological tests shown by psychology professionals and students. Thirty psychologists of several professional areas and 30 last years psychology students participated in this research. The instrument was a questionnaire containing 10 items of social-demographic identification and 13 items about reading of statistical and non-statistical psychological tests manual content. The results indicate a significant difference in reading statistical and non-statistical content, and their difficulty, between professionals and students. The results corroborate with other studies on the subject.
