Scoring

Scores that can be generated by using the Bender-Gestalt II include: Scaled Scores, T Scores, Percentile Ranks, and Confidence Intervals

Interpretation
The Bender-Gestalt II Global Scoring System was designed to assess visual-motor integration functioning across a large segment of the lifespan.  As such, it can aid in differentiating subtypes of learning, psychological, and neurological problems.  The Recall phase adds to the utility of the Bender-Gestalt II by providing a brief assessment of memory.  The Recall phase can be used as an indicator of how well the examinee encodes, stores, and retrieves information from memory.  Like performance on the Copy phase, performance on the Recall phase can be influenced by motor and perceptual problems. 

The Global Scoring System provides an overall impression of an individual’s performance on the Bender-Gestalt II.  Generally, the lower the score, the greater the likelihood that severe pathology (whether it is developmental, physiological, neurological, or psychological) exists.
