‘Psychological assessments and intervention’ provides students with a theoretical and practical overview of the assessment of individual difference, as a component of evidence-based practice. You will explore various classes of tests and classification tools – including a detailed examination of distinct models that measure ability and individual difference – and the role psychological assessment plays in evidence-based interventions for common clinical disorders. Another core focus of your study will be test evaluation methods, from a contemporary perspective that engages with recent trends in development theory, while covering the practicalities of test administration, scoring and interpretation.
