Abstract
Cross-validated the use of a short form of the Halstead Category Test as suggested by D. A. Calsyn et al (see record 1981-02450-001). For 60 Ss (mean age 36.72 yrs), it was found that the total score estimated from their formula (based on the 1st 4 subtests of the Category Test) correlated .88 with the overall score. The formula was cross-validated in 3 samples with all correlations above .83. It was found that the formula could reliably predict who would exceed the cutoff of the entire test, with an overall accuracy across the 4 samples of 184 out of 205. (3 ref)
