The two semester assessment sequence provides coursework and practical experience in intellectual, academic achievement, personality assessment, and structured diagnostic interviewing. A grounding is provided in the standardization, administration, scoring, interpretation, and communication of the results of psychological evaluation both in writing and in consultation with referral sources. Under close supervision, students learn to integrate information, write comprehensive psychological reports, and provide feedback to clients.
Direct observation and videotape review facilitates the acquisition of basic assessment skills. Volunteers, Psychology Clinic clients, and community referrals serve as the basis for clinical experiences.
