Description:

Competency Area: Psychological Measurement
Required of and restricted to Year I students.

This course is an introductory survey of tests and measurements whose purpose is twofold. First, it provides the academic background for clinically oriented coursework in psychological testing. The psychometrics of tests and controversies around testing are discussed. Students learn to evaluate tests critically, and to select and implement an assessment battery. These topics make up approximately two-thirds of the course. Second, measurement knowledge provides a basis for students to apply themselves to a beginning level of understanding and application of the MMPI-2. Work on the MMPI-2 comprises the remaining one-third of the course.
