Texas Christian Univ., Fort Worth. Inst. of Behavioral Research.
The report summarizes research on the development and standardization of objectively scored language and adjustment scales for five cards of the Thematic Apperception Test (TAT) used in the Health Examination Survey of a subsample of 1,398 youths 12-to 17-years-old. Described is the development of cognitive and personality measures derived from scores on oral TAT protocols as well as the development of behavioral and rating measures of health and intellectual, academic, and social functioning for use as criteria in the evaluation of TAT factors. It is explained that an important finding was that language development as assessed by the TAT scales is essentially completed by adolescence. A major portion of the document is devoted to 22 supplementary statistical tables and to appendixes which include a scoring manual and sample health examination survey forms. (LH)
