PESSOTTO, Fernando  and  PRIMI, Ricardo. Evidence of criterion validity for the wartegg Test. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.3, pp. 279-291. ISSN 1677-0471.

Wartegg is an expressive graphic test focused on identifying aspects of personality. In order to find evidence of criterion validity for the same, this study included 40 individuals, equally divided into two groups, one consisting of schizophrenics and the other of subjects with no history of psychiatric pathology. After all participants had responded to the Wartegg Test, they were coded in the system proposed by Pessotto (2015). Results indicated that, of the 55 possible variables analyzed, 7 presented a significant difference between the groups. In the logistic regression it was possible to observe the predictive character of the variables with emphasis on poor Formal Quality (FQ) and Human Movement (M). For these two variables, combined use was observed as favorable, indicating evidence of criterion validity. Emphasis is given to the need for further research as this is an initial study with the system.
