Prediction of Mental Health Through Computer Scoring of a Sentence Completion Test.
Menaker, Shirley L.; And Others
An investigation was undertaken to determine how successfully an overall adjustment rating made by trained clinical raters could be predicted by means of a computer program for scoring adjustment which used only the data from a one word sentence completion instrument. Subjects for the study were 69 female college seniors at the University of Texas. The adjustment ratings on these subjects made by the clinical raters were based on an extensive assessment battery, which included the sentence completion instrument. (Author/CK)
