REPPOLD, Caroline Tozzi; SERAFINI, Adriana Jung; RAMIRES, Diógenes Angelini  e  GURGEL, Léia Gonçalves. Analysis of psychological manuals approved by SATEPSI for assessment of children and adolescents in Brazil. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.1, pp. 19-28. ISSN 1677-0471.

Faced with the need to expand the information provided in the Psychological Testing Assessment System (SATEPSI) on the instruments of child psychological evaluation, this study aimed to indicate the psychological tests for use in children and adolescents up to 18 years of age approved by the Federal Council of Psychology. The age range recommended for use, the rated construct and the age of standardization samples of the instruments were considered. We analyzed 158 tests on the list of favorable SATEPSI instruments, through the search for manuals, contact with the authors, publishing or publishing validation studies of instruments. Of the 158 tests, 11.39% were directed exclusively to the evaluation of children, the most prevalent constructs were intelligence, personality and social skills. The greatest need is observed in the age group of zero to five years old. Only 2.53% only assessed adolescents, and in general these instruments were related to learning, self-concept and career guidance. The results also showed that many manuals do not specify to which age group the test is indicated, or have discrepancy between the age of indication and age of the participants of the search study evidence of validity. The most recent manuals provide more detailed information and more related studies, which shows the positive impact of SATEPSI effort to qualify the instruments available.
