PSYCH 512 - Child Assessment


Prerequisites: PSYCH 505  or consent of the Instructor
This course provides an overview of the basic methods of psychological assessment of children. As we review these methods, we will focus on their strengths and limitations, both in terms of their psychometric and practical characteristics. Knowledge of principles of psychometric theory, test construction, and statistical properties (i.e., reliability and validity) is therefore assumed and will not be a primary focus of this course. The course also includes an applied component. You will have an opportunity to practice the administration and scoring of a select battery of assessment instruments with your peers and with practice test subjects. These practice assessments will provide a context for discussing various technical and ethical issues related to the assessment of children within a psychological framework.
