About this Unit
This unit has been designed to introduce students to psychological assessment by providing practical and theoretical input regarding the administration, scoring, and interpretation of frequently used standardised measures. The scientific and ethical underpinnings of psychological testing and assessment are introduced providing a general context for the employment of standardised psychological tests. Emphasis will then be placed on familiarisation with i) the processes that practitioners go through during a testing session and ii) current research on employing the standardised tests presented in this unit. Students will practise with testing data, reporting results in compliance with American Psychological Association (APA) conventions.
