A NORMATIVE STUDY OF CHILDREN'S HOUSE-TREE-PERSON DRAWINGS.
RAPPAPORT, SHELDON R.
THIS STUDY WAS THE FIRST PHASE OF A THREE-PART PROJECT WHOSE GOAL IS TO ESTABLISH VALID CRITERIA FOR IDENTIFYING THE HOUSE-TREE-PERSON (H-T-P) DRAWINGS OF NORMAL CHILDREN THROUGHOUT THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL YEARS. THE SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES OF THIS STUDY WERE (1) TO IDENTIFY WHICH ITEMS OF THE H-T-P TEST CHARACTERIZE NORMAL DEVELOPMENT THROUGH GRADES 2, 3, AND 5 AND (2) TO SET UP A SHORT, WORKABLE SCORING SYSTEM BY WHICH LARGE GROUPS OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN COULD BE SCREENED FOR NORMAL DEVELOPMENT. THE H-T-P TEST WAS SCORED FOR THE PRESENCE OR ABSENCE OF 821 QUALITATIVE ITEMS AND FOR 12 QUANTITATIVE MEASUREMENTS. BY OMITTING THOSE ITEMS WHICH WERE AMBIGUOUS, DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND OR SCORE, OR IRRELEVANT TO DEVELOPMENT, THE INVESTIGATOR SELECTED 57 ITEMS FOR THE SCORING SYSTEM. IT WAS FELT THAT THE TENTATIVE SCORING SYSTEM DEVISED FOR THIS STUDY COULD BE USED ONLY FOR RESEARCH PURPOSES. (GD)
