Adaptation of Psychological Assessment Tools for Administration by Blind and Visually Impaired Psychologists and Trainees.
Keller, Richard M.
This paper focuses on challenges to psychologists and psychology graduate students who are blind or visually impaired in the administration and scoring of various psychological tests. Organized by specific tests, the paper highlights those aspects of testing which pose particular difficulty to testers with visual impairments and also describes methods by which some tests can be adapted to mediate these challenges. Specific tests include: (1) the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised verbal subtests and performance subtests; (2) the Visual Motor Gestalt Test; (3) the Rorschach Test; (4) the Thematic Apperception Test; and (5) projective drawing tests.
