Abstract : A projective technique to be used in conjunction with several other assessment devices in evaluating the Ward Manager program in Naval Hospitals was developed. The sentence completion method was selected as the technique of choice. The semantic differential scale was included as a check on the validity of the scoring system. The techniques were assembled and administered as a pilot-test effort to 75 patients, 61 of whom produced scorable protocols. No major problems were encountered in the pilot testing. The correlations of the two instruments used in this pilot testing seem to relate to one another to acceptable degree. This not only supports the validity of the sentence completion scale, but it also extends the use of the total technique. (Author)
