As consumers of psychological reports, it is important that clinicians be able to evaluate the validity of the information provided. In order to do so, they should be familiar with the characteristics (psychometric properties) of an assessment method that represent the reliability and validity of the method. In the last few weeks you explored the concepts of reliability, validity, standardization, and special populations related to psychological tests. Now you apply this knowledge and skills in evaluating psychological tests that might be used in an overall psychological assessment of your virtual client.
For this Assignment, review the interactive media, Virtual Client. Review the presenting problem and the assessment question that you developed in your Week 1 Assignment and consider any additional questions that you might formulate. Return to the Mental Measurements Yearbook and select two psychological tests that you might recommend for this client to assess the client’s needs.
