HAZIN, Izabel et al. Evidences of validity and standards of the TEPIC-M for children and adolescents. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.18, n.3, pp. 297-305. ISSN 1677-0471.

The TEPIC-M is a test that evaluates short-term visual memory that has been validated and standardized for the 17 to 89 years age group. Participants of this study were 542 students aged between six and 16 years, of public and private educational institutions in the city of Natal, Brazil. The study aimed to find evidence of criterion validity and standards for children and adolescents. Statistically significant difference were found in the mean number of correct answers when comparing the performances of the participants according to the type of school (p <0.001) and age (p <0.001). Conversely, there were no differences in the mean number of correct answers between the sexes (p = 0.808). It was concluded that the instrument is suitable for the evaluation of short-term visual memory among Brazilian children and adolescents and can be used in future studies with this population.
