ZIBETTI, Murilo Ricardo; BORDIGNON, Suelen  and  TRENTINI, Clarissa Marceli. Development and standardization of a brazilian set of pictorial stimuli. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.1, pp. 9-21. ISSN 1677-0471.

The aim of this study was to create and to standardize a new set of 89 pictorial stimuli for Brazilian middle aged and elderly people (40-89 years). Verbal Concepts (89) were selected from studies that investigated norms semantic association. All concepts are drawn and evaluated by three judges. Thereafter, each pictorial stimulus was standardized on the following attributes: conceptual agreement, naming agreement, conceptual familiarity and visual complexity. At least 93.3% (83) stimuli presented satisfactory conceptual agreement. The other attributes showed correlation coefficients close to those observed in the standardization of the largest international sets pictorial stimuli. These results suggest the quality of this set of pictorial stimuli and will contribute for the development of the test called MAPS (Memory and Learning with Selective Cues) and others psychological assessment tools.

Keywords : pictorial stimuli; name agreement; familiarity; visual complexity; memory.
