Test CritiqueTEST CRITIQUE ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS OVERVIEW When selecting which assessment instruments and strategies to use counselors must evaluate instruments on the basis of several factors. For most published formal assessment instruments the test manual is the primary source of evaluative information. Therefore counselors must be able to evaluate the appropriateness of using an assessment in a comprehensive manner. The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate your ability to apply the established guidelines used by professionals to evaluate the appropriateness of using an assessment. INSTRUCTIONS Length of assignment: 2100-2400 words (not including the title page abstract and reference page) Format of assignment: APA for font (Times New Roman 12 pt.) title page abstract margins and section headings narrative (not outline) format Quotations from reference sources: not permitted Number of citations: 5 or more Acceptable sources: scholarly articles/texts published within the last ten years You must choose a test that you would use in a counseling setting such as the Millon the Wechsler scales the Personality Assessment Inventory etc. Therefore do not choose tests such as the SAT GRE ASVAB etc. The test must be clinical in nature that deals with the various forms of pathology and or dysfunctional behavior/affect. Note that you may not choose the MMPI-2 or the TAT as these tests are highly researched and plagiarism issues can arise. You can use tests that can be administered online through the test publisher. However you cannot use internet-based free tests such as the IPIP-NEO or the Jung Personality Test; these are representations of reputable tests such as the NEO-PI-3 or the MBTI. These free internet-based tests are not assessments you can ethically administer to a client. Your paper will be structured according to the headings provided below. You can also review the questions provided by the authors in the textbook (pp. 176-179) to guide professionals in evaluating assessment instruments. The Test Critique contains six sections including references. Information to be presented in each section is presented below. Please note that the information is organized in an outline format only to help you identify the information for you to include in the report. Do not use an outline format to report the results of your critique and do not use internet-based assessments (IPIP-NEO Jung Personality Test etc.) Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via the SafeAssign plagiarism tool.
