BANNACH, Eduarda Lehmann  and  BIANCHI, Alessandra Sant'Anna. Palographic test: Challenges for training in psychological evaluation. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.4, pp. 400-408. ISSN 1677-0471.

The teste Palográfico (Palographic test) is a personality test used a lot in Brazil. The aim of this study was to perform an analysis on the way that correction of this test has been performed by psychologists that work daily with psychological evaluation. For this, questionnaires were applied to 295 licensed psychologists. These were aged between 26 and 66 years (M=40.34, SD=9.91); with 94.9% females. The results highlight the lack of standardization in the correction process of the test, which generates the possibility of the same person receiving different results depending on the criteria used. In addition, three problems were found: the time spent during the correction process; lack of application of proper methods to evaluate the tests and the incorrect interpretation of test items. From the errors in the correction of the test, we discuss the need to consider the psychologist's training regarding psychological assessment.
