BARTHOLOMEU, Daniel et al. Bender Test (B-SPG) and HFD-Escala Sisto: validity by contrasting groups. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.3, n.2, pp. 241-257. ISSN 2236-6407.

This study investigated validity evidences by contrasting groups for the Bender (B-SPG) and DFH-Escala Sisto. The instruments were administered to 244 pupils, being 50.4% boys and all of them aged from seven to 10 years, with an average of eight years (DP=1,08) attending from first to fourth grades of the basic education of a public school in the state of São Paulo. The tests were collectively administered and the slides of the Bender test were projected in the blackboard to be copied by the children. Differences between the extreme groups of the DFH in relation to the Bender scores were evidenced in all the studied situations. It was concluded that the Gestaltic Test furnishes an estimative of the intellectual capacities of children and differentiates those with bigger scores in the DFH from those less scored.

Keywords : psychological assessment; Bender test; human figure drawing; psychodiagnostic; human development.
