A Note on Some Problems in the Testing of Personality Characteristics in Children with Visual Impairment
Tobin, Michael; Hill, Eileen
British Journal of Visual Impairment, v28 n3 p260-263 Sep 2010
An examination is made of the value of using published personality tests with young blind and partially sighted children. Based on data gathered during a longitudinal investigation into the educational and psychological development of a group of 120 visually impaired learners, the authors conclude that their own selection of a test instrument cannot be deemed to have been successful. A more up-to-date assessment procedure and one based on a better theoretical understanding of the personality structure of congenitally visually impaired children is considered necessary.
