Personality Assessment.

In this week’s Assignment, apply your knowledge of test selection and evaluation to personality assessment. You select a personality test that might be appropriate for your virtual client based on the presenting information. In addition, you practice integrating the hypothetical results of a personality test to increase your understanding of the particular dynamics of your client and his or her presenting problem.

The Assignment (5–7 pages; not included title or reference page)(APA format):

Part A:

  • Summarize the presenting problem of the virtual client and create a hypothesis.
  • Select a personality test from the Mental Measurements Yearbook. (Note: You are to select a test that is not listed in this week’s Learning Resources; thus, avoid using the following:16PF adolescent personality questionnaire, Five-factor personality inventory-children.)
  • Evaluate and explain why this test is most appropriate for assessing the client’s personality and justify your selection.

Part B:

  • Evaluate the Mock Assessment Results provided below.
  • Explain whether the evaluation results support or invalidate your hypothesis of the presenting problem.
  • Justify your response.
  • Briefly describe which additional psychological tests or assessment methods you might consider for your client.
  • Explain two ways that you might integrate the evaluation results into client treatment planning and why.
