The Franck Drawing Completion Test: a tool for research in sex-role identification.

Author information

  • 1Behavioral Sciences Department, California Polytechnic University, Pomona 91768, USA.


The criterion validity of the Franck Drawing Completion Test (FDCT) was reexamined, employing a developmental sample of 486 students from grades 2,4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 as well as an adult sample of 107 college students. The measure was found to differentiate between males and females at a high level of significance at every grade level and in the adult sample. Clear developmental trends were found for males in the general direction of increasing numbers of masculine responses with age, while female means were stable throughout. Results are interpreted as providing strong support for the FDCT as a useful measure of sex-role identification. The original theoretical interpretation of the FDCT is reviewed and an alternative values interpretation is suggested.
