The project is directed to the exploration of the procedures used by psychologists in evaluating a persons performance on a battery of psychological tests or scales. During the course of this research a language was developed and programmed for the 7094 which greatly facilitates the development of test interpretation systems. The basic element of this language is the sentence-generating operator which relates a class of verbal material to a pattern of scores. Any operator may appear as an argument of any other operator, making it possible to represent complex decision rules in a natural way. Moreover, the class of verbal material defined by any operator may occur as an element in the verbal material defined by any other operator, making it possible do develop complex linguistic structures as well. The system is being successfully used to produce clinical interpretations of complex profiles of test scores. Author
