- Exner Scoring System
The Exner Scoring System is the standard method in
psychologyfor interpreting the Rorschach inkblot test.
In the 1960s, Dr.
John E. Exnerdeveloped a more scientific system for Rorschach test analysis. It has been heavily validated, and shows high inter-rater reliability. [Exner, J.E. (2002). The Rorschach: Basic Foundations and Principles of Interpretation: Volume 1. Hoboken, NJ: Wiley. ISBN 0471386723] [Weiner, I. B. "What the Rorschach Can do for you: Incremental validity in clinical applications." Assessment 6(1999): 327-338.] In 1969 Dr. Exner published "The Rorschach Systems", a concise description of what would be later called the Exner system. Later, Dr. Exner published a study in multiple volumes called "The Rorschach: A Comprehensive system", the most accepted full description of the Exner system.
