    1. type of psychological test
    2. a brief description of the instrument
    3. the administration, scoring and interpretation
    4. a statement about the reliability and validity
    5. any social/cultural/ethical issues pertinent to the test.

  2. In this part, you will evaluate the test’s validity. Be sure to address:

    2. What are the advantages and disadvantages of having a test with high face validity?
    3.  Discuss the four Validity scales and how each one assesses validity.

Be sure to support your conclusions with information drawn from the online content, the textbook, and other credible, scholarly sources to substantiate the points you are making.  Apply APA standards to writing and citations to your work.

Good resources would also include Mental Measurements Yearbook and Tests in Print.

The Peckham Decision dictates that school psychologists in California may not use intelligence testing on African-American children to determine special-education placement. This is due to a cultural bias because a large percentage of African-Americans were being placed in the Educable Mentally Retarded category.

How might this decision help and potentially harm African-American students with special educational needs? Remember to support your arguments with information drawn from the online content, the textbook, and other credible, scholarly sources to substantiate the points you are making.  Apply APA standards to writing and citations to your work.
