Discussion Week 1 Lin Ashley

Assumptions About Psychological Testing and AssessmentResources Attributes and Evaluation of Discussion Contributions.
In the unit introduction, you read about the influence that your history and previous experiences with tests may likely have on your perception of them at the start of this course. Remember to set aside these perceptions as you enter the course and learn about tests and their measurement. Remain cognizant of them as you proceed so they do not prevent you from learning about tests and, perhaps, change your mind, either way, about them. Additionally, in your readings from the Psychological Testing and Assessment text, you were introduced to seven basic assumptions about psychological assessment. Identify the one assumption that was the most difficult for you to accept based on your current understanding or previous experiences with testing.In your post:Identify the assumption by number and title that presented the most questions for you. (Include the number and title in your subject line of the discussion thread when you post it.) Also, include an indicator about how concerning the assumption is to you at this time (that is, 0 = No concern at all, just the most problematic relative to all other assumptions I am presented; 1 = Somewhat concerned with this assumption; 2 = Very concerned with this assumption; 3 = Significantly concerned and in disagreement with this assumption).Identify specific parts or elements of the assumption that were most concerning to you.Analyze if the assumption elements identified are based on (a) your previous experiences, (b) others’ perspectives, (c) facts, or (d) a combination of these.Discuss why these elements were most concerning to you in terms of those previous experiences, perspectives, or facts. Essentially, share an example of those experiences or knowledge that resulted in your current concern.Identify which future chapter in the Psychological Testing and Assessment text may be important and relevant for you, based on the assumption you identified (Hint: Look through the Table of Contents or Index in your text for help).

Use your Psychological Testing and Assessment: An Introduction to Tests and Measurement text to complete the following:Read Chapter 1, “Psychological Testing and Assessment,” pages 1–37.Read Chapter 2, “Historical, Cultural, and Legal/Ethical Considerations,” pages 38–76.Read pages 118–124 of Chapter 4, “Of Tests and Testing.”Use your Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing text to read Chapter 10, “Psychological Testing and Assessment,” pages 151–168.Use the Capella University Library to read pages 6–14 of Embretson’s 2004 article, “The Second Century of Ability Testing: Some Predictions and Speculations,” from  Measurement: Interdisciplinary Research and Perspectives, volume 2, issue 1. (See “The First Century of Ability Testing: A Brief Review.”)Use the Internet to read “Joint Committee on Testing Practices. (2004). Code of fair testing practices in education.” from Joint Committee on Testing Practices.Article SearchIn preparation for the second discussion in this unit, locate and review two journal articles on one of the following four historic figures in tests and measurements:Sir Francis Galton.James McKeen Cattell.Alfred Binet.Lewis Terman.See instructions for the second discussion.MediaClick Interview With a Psychometrist to listen to the presentation.Interview With a PsychometristBegin Activity icon

Who is familiar with Psychology regarding behavior?

I recently signed and paid madam professor to do my assignment. She was SO FAR off track that I am now sketchy to use this site. Obviously everyone is trying to sell them self as a “professional writer” and does not even know what the topic is about. I had over 20 pop ups of persons wanting to do my assignment claiming they are the best of the best and yet I did not even tell anyone what the subject was about. NOT everyone is knowledgeable in psychology. Here is my assignment and I will read your bio and references to assure I do not make the same mistake! I want a refund!!

 

 

 

You will be completing a self-management project in Week 5, and your topic needs to be approved by your instructor to ensure it is behavioral, measurable, and objectively defined. Doing so ensures that you select an appropriate topic but also gets you thinking about how to operationally define behavior.

Choose a target behavior for your Week 5 Self-Management Project.

Write a 175-word summary on the target behavior in observable and measurable terms. Include the methods that will be used to observe and acquire baseline data.

Submit your target behavior description, along with the dimension you will be measuring to your instructor for approval.
