Draw-A-Man Test

 

Purpose of the measure

The Draw-A-Man Test (Goodenough, 1926) has been widely used as a measure of intellectual maturation in children, to elicit personality type and unconscious material, and as part of neuropsychologic test batteries. The test has also been used to identify the presence of unilateral spatial neglect (USN) in adult patients post-stroke.
