This is a practical unit aiming to familiarise students with a range of psychological assessment methods commonly administered in psychological practice. While the main focus will be on testing, other major methods of psychological assessment will be covered, including behavioural observation and interviewing. Various categories of tests will be discussed, evaluated and administered, including cognitive and intelligence tests, ability tests, personality tests, and tests of mood states. The role of such tests in diagnostic work will be emphasised as well as their prognostic and therapeutic use. Particular skills required will be practised through 'hands-on' experience.
