Psychological tests and testing in educational settings are considered from functional and contextual viewpoints, with emphasis on usage of test results. Test construction and psychometric issues, links between theory and measure, reporting and ethics, are covered through examining specific tests. Hands-on practice with mainstream tests (intelligence, development and personality) is used as the primary vehicle for learning.
On completion of this subject students will be able to:
Written assignments totalling not more than 4,000 - 5,000 words (80%) and two practical hurdle requirements (20%).
A minimum pass grade is required in all assessment tasks.
Attendance at all classes (tutorial/seminars/practical classes/lectures/labs) is obligatory. Failure to attend 80% of classes will normally result in failure in the subject.
