COUN 816: Clinical, Leadership and Organizational Assessment
This course prepares students to use testing procedures in assessing three critical areas of the profession: psychopathology, leadership skills, and organizational development. Students conduct multiple assessments in the course; they administer the instruments, write assessment reports, and consult with clients to develop appropriate interventions. They learn procedures for constructing valid and reliable psychological inventories. State-of-the-art issues relating to testing, such as high-risk testing, test bias for immigrant workers, ethical issues in testing, and pros/cons of computer assessment, are addressed. The course includes a 20-hour experiential component in which students develop instructional skills by assisting in teaching a masters level individual appraisal course. (Testing Fee required) 3 hours lecture.
