Effectiveness of Sentence Completion Techniques: A Review of the Hart Sentence Completion Test for Children

pp. 428—434

ABSTRACT: Even though sentence completion techniques (SCT) generally lack the prerequisite psychometric evidence for reliability and validity, they are commonly employed in individual assessment. Several SCTs are reviewed relative to the practice of school psychology, and evidence is presented to support the Hart Sentence Completion Test for Children (HSCT) as aviable diagnostic tool for obtaining relevant information. The HSCT was designed specifically for use in school psychology and has the theoretical premise that significant clinical information can be effectively drawn from a child’s perception of four dominant dimensions(i.e., family, school, social, self).
