Question description

Evaluation report writing is an essential component of a psychology professional's work with clients in the legal system. The results of evaluations have to be reported accurately to third parties and have to be written in a clear and plain language that reflects the information obtained from all relevant sources, including the evaluator's subjective opinion, the collateral information, and the objective test data. Accurate reporting of information to courts is crucial since it will potentially have great influence on the outcomes of the relevant legal proceedings.

Tasks:

Using your textbook and the Argosy University online library resources, discuss how you would write (in about 350 words) and present a risk assessment to the parole board, considering the following:

  • The influence of the Daubert Standard on the written report
  • The concept of reasonable certainty in reporting objective and subjective data in the report
  • The importance of basing results of the assessment on normative data
  • The reporting of client's response styles during the assessment
  • Your preparedness to conduct a peer review of the written risk assessment

Your response should rely upon at least two sources from additional professional literature; the sources must be cited in APA format. The literature may include relevant textbooks, peer-reviewed journal articles, and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu, .org, and .gov).

Submission Details:

  • By the due date assigned, post your responses to this Discussion Area.
  • Through the end of the module, respond to at least two other classmates' posts. Participate in the discussion by asking a question, providing a statement of clarification, providing a point of view with a rationale, challenging an aspect of the discussion, or indicating a relationship between two or more lines of reasoning in the discussion.

Super fast turn around time. Very impressed and will use Studypool again if I need a quick job. Communication was a bit tough but not unbearable.
