The purpose of this study was to determine whether the Pictogram Test (a test that was developed and used in Russia) is applicable for the English-speaking population of the USA for diagnosing schizophrenia. Another study goal was to establish construct validity of the Pictogram Test. Russian-speaking participants from Russia and English-speaking participants from the USA were participants in this study. In each language group there were two groups: participants diagnosed with schizophrenia and normal controls. The results showed that the Pictogram Test is generally applicable for the English-speaking population. Moreover, the results showed that the Pictogram Test is sensible for detecting schizophrenia. Evidence for construct validity of the Pictogram Test and MMPI-2 scales that associated with diagnosis of schizophrenia was found in this study.
