Justifying Projective/Personality Assessment in School Psychology: A Response to Batsche and Peterson

pp. 446—451

ABSTRACT: A rejoinder to Batsche and Peterson’s article is presented which discusses the theoretical,empirical, and pragmatic merits of projective assessment when performed in the context of a comprehensive personality assessment battery. The unique applications of projective assessment in the schools, with its psychological Xeducational demands, when completed by school psychologists are presented. The article concludes that there is no incompatibility between school psychology and projective tests, and that they cannot be categorically dismissed.
