Norberto Orozco Portales III IV – 21 BSE Values Education majors
P U R P O S E : The HSPQ is a new aid for teachers, guidance counselors and for general clinical and research use. It is a standardized test that can be given within a class period to individuals or in groups, to yield a general assessment to personality development. Measures distinct (14) dimensions or traits of personality which have been found by psychologist to come near to covering the total personality By working with these 14 scores, the psychologist can obtain prediction of school achievement, vocational fitness, danger of delinquency, likelihood of leadership qualities, need for clinical help in neurotic condition, etc. Reading level of the test is adapted to ages 11-12 through 18 years old
TEST ADMINISTRATION The test is administered without a time limit but can be complete by all, but the slowest readers finish in about 40-50 minutes per form. During the test meaning words may be explained to an examinee upon request, except for the intelligence scales no. (23, 24, 43, 44, 63, 64, 83, 84, 104, 124) The average time needed by high school pupils to finish the test will generally fall with in a class period of 50 to 60 minutes definitely better performance can insured in the slower examinees by calling out at 10, 20 and 30 minutes from the start. Individual testing can be carried out with essentially the same procedure as group testing so that one leaves the examinees tor read instructions himself, you ask questions if necessary and to work alone.
SCORING Check to see that each question has been given one and only one answers at the same time, not yet whether there are gross oddities of response which could upset the keys. Watch for the occasional child who makes all positions, or who proceeds mechanically to mark all right hand responses, etc. reject such answer sheet. Place cardboard stencil key no. 1 on the left hand side of the answer sheet adjusting it as described right to the key. All necessary instructions for applying the hand stencil key to get “raw scores” for 7 of the factor are also printed on the key itself. Do the same with cardboard stencil key no. 2 to get the other raw scores.
STANDARDIZATION: Norms in Stens and Centiles The main standard scores are stens, in which a person can score from 1 to 10, but additionally, scores can be converted to centiles, which shows what rank the examinees would have in a group of a hundred people. To obtain the sten score or centile ranks, simply take a raw score you get from applying the scoring key and enter in the appropriate table in the tabular supplement with norms published separately for the test
INTERPRETING the SCORES Each dimension is defined by two poles or extremes. The left hand one description is a score at the low end of the stens (1, 2 and 3) and the right hand, at the high end (8, 9, and 10). Fourteen sources of information are really not too many to handle when one considers that a comprehensive description of personality is conveyed. The information can be packaged in even more condensed form in terms of three or four broad and therefore more approximate categories, each of which combines in one score or estimate, 4 or more of the original 14 scores.
