WECHSLER, Solange Muglia; HUTZ, Claudio Simon  e  PRIMI, Ricardo. The development of psychological assessment in Brazil: Historical advances and challenges. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.18, n.2, pp. 121-128. ISSN 1677-0471.

The history of psychological assessment in Brazil is found in a scattered way, so there is the need to gather this information as well as to present the milestones of its evolution. Undoubtedly, this evolution has been noticed since the last 20 years, with the foundation of the Brazilian Institute of Psychological Assessment-IBAP and the support from the Federal Council of Psychology which organized commissions for psychological assessment and created the System for Evaluating Psychological Tests-SATEPSI. The results can be observed with the increase of laboratories for test construction and validation, research groups, professional associations as well as publications. We conclude that psychological assessment in Brazil reached a considerable level of maturity and can be considered as an example for other South American countries.
