PSYCH 505 - Introduction to Clinical Assessment: Objective Tests


Prerequisites: None
This course focuses on the fundamentals of clinical assessment with adults. This will include a review of relevant psychometrics and statistical properties (i.e., reliability and validity) as well as the basics of clinical assessment (i.e., ethical guidelines and report writing). We will focus on three areas of psychological assessment: intelligence, achievement, and personality assessment. Within each area, we will review the conceptual and theoretical issues relevant to conducting psychological assessments and become familiar with the most common tools used in assessments with adults. The course also includes an applied component in which students will have an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of administration, scoring, and interpretation of a select battery of assessment tools. These practical experiences will provide a context for further discussion of the various technical and ethical issues related to psychological assessment.
