Preparing the Transparency Template
1. Photocopy the templates from Appendixes 5a and 5b onto an 8'' x 11'' SUMMARY FOR THE RORSCHACH
transparency. Do not enlarge or reduce the size of the form. (It’s ofteneasiest to take the book to a full-service photocopy store where you canpurchase a single transparency and have them photocopy it for you.) 2. Place the photocopied transparency on top of the Structural Summary 3. Use the L-shaped indices at the corners of the transparency to align it UPPER AND LOWER SECTIONS OF
with the Structural Summary form. Make sure the boxed numbers on the THE STRUCTURAL SUMMARY
transparency are located to the left of the variables underneath.
The Structural Summary compiles all of one examinee’s scores. It includes 4. Secure the transparency to the form using a binder or paper clip on one corner. Once the transparency is secure, the examiner can flip the two sections, upper and lower. The upper section records the frequency with transparency up and down without needing to realign the transparency which each variable appeared in the record, while the lower section records ratios, percentages, and derived scores, as well as special indices.

Again, if you are pressed for time or are not able to make the transparency, hand-print the numbers on the upper half of the Structural Summary form to Now you are ready to begin scoring. For each section you will find a table providing scoring directions. As you fill in the upper portion of the Structural Summary form, leave the area for the variable blank if there are no scores to tally. There are two exceptions to this rule explained in Caution 4.1.
