Abstract

The aim in this study was to verify the contents taught and teaching methods used by undergraduate Psychology teachers, specifically in the subjects related to psychological assessment. A two-part questionnaire was used: the first part served to characterize the participants, and the second the subjects taught. Twenty-two teachers participated. Among the respondents, 72.7% were female, 77.3% were psychological assessment teachers and 45.5% had graduated from public universities. For the open question, about the subjects taught, analysis and expert analysis categories were established. About the subjects taught, most respondents teach the techniques and theoretical foundations of tests. In contrast, the history of assessment and the elaboration principles of psychological documents were the topics taught least.
