FREIRES, Leogildo Alves et al. Teaching of psychological assessment in Northern of Brazil: Analyzing the courses' summaries. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.2, pp.205-214. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study aimed at analyzing the syllabuses of psychological assessment (PA) disciplines offered in higher education Psychology courses in the North of Brazil. Initially, it was possible to verify a variety of denominations for the field of PA in this region and that these courses offer an average of 3.82 disciplines in this area. The initial contact of the students with PA occurs in the sophomore year. Only six institutions provided the content of the syllabuses, and this data was analyzed with a software named Iramuteq. The results indicated a syllabus that features a technicist training trend, emphasizing the psychological diagnostic practice, the procedures of application and interpretation of instruments and traditional constructs such as intelligence and personality. In conclusion, the need for efforts to align the teaching of PA in the North with the guidelines of this field in Brazil and to the current theoretical, technical and methodological advances is clear.
