MERINO SOTO, César A.. The qualitative scoring system for the modified version of the Bender-Gestalt Test: preliminary study of its psychometric properties. Av. Psicol. Latinoam. [online]. 2010, vol.28, n.1, pp. 63-73. ISSN 1794-4724.
The present report describes the psychometric properties of the Qualitative Scoring System for the Modified version of the Bender-Gestalt Test, in a 97 childrens group, that are going to enter to first grade of elementary education in a public school of Lima. Our findings report modest levels of reliability internal consistency and test-retest reliability, in comparison with the coefficients of the manual, but their potential range (due confidence intervals) gets to high levels. The correlation with task orientation, fl uid intelligence and parental report of fine-motor behavior give support to the validity and utility of this new scoring system in the context of first grade childrens assessment. We discuss the limits and relevance of this scoring system for the psychoeducational research and assessment.
