Elizabeth M. Koppitz
ABSTRACT: A brief history of the use of drawings as a projective technique is presented. This is followed by a discussion of major purposes of drawings in the assessment of school children:(a) Evaluation of pupils’ personalities with Human Figure Drawings; (b) Family Drawings and Kinetic Family Drawings as means of assessing children’s attitudes toward their parents and siblings, and the youngsters’ perceptions of their own place within the family; (c) School Drawing Techniques to explore attitudes toward teachers, peers, and school; and (d) Drawings as reflections of children’s values and attitudes toward social and cultural groups.
