If you are researching tests for a course assignment, such as this one, the MMY is an excellent research tool.Note: You may review the document Accessing the DSM-5 and the Mental Measurement Yearbook (given in the resources) to understand how to access these resources in the Capella library.

    Instructions

    For the assignment, create a 9–12-slide PowerPoint presentation for a group of trainee mental health professionals and legal representatives. In your presentation, explain three different measures that might be used to determine an appropriate diagnosis for a juvenile offender. The possible diagnoses are:
    • ADHD.
    • Oppositional defiance.
    • Conduct disorder.
    You may see overlap in the measures you examine but be sure your rationale addresses why a particular measure supports your choice for the specific disorder.
    • Access the DSM-5 and find the criteria for each one of the disorders.
    • Access the MMY and find a measure that you would use for each of the disorders.
    • Include the following for each measure in your presentation:
      • A brief description of the disorder (based on DSM-5 but in your own words).
      • A description of the measure (based on the MMY but in your own words). Include primary audience, purpose, how the measure is administered, what it measures, and what its strengths and limitations are.
      • A rationale for your choice.
    Be sure to use one slide to succinctly deliver each of the three main points. Put your notes or explanatory and expanded information for each of the main points using one of the following options:
    • On the following slide. (Do not use the Notes section because Turnitin cannot evaluate this section.) Important: These slides do not count toward the required 9–12 slides.
    • In a separate Word document. Label each set of notes in the Word document with the number and title of the slide to which the notes refer. Important: Be sure to submit this document also to the assignment area.
    Be sure you review the Mental Measures for Juvenile Offenders Scoring Guide to ensure that you have met all the criteria for this assignment.

    Your assignment should meet the following requirements:
    • Written communication: Written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message.

    • References: A minimum of three references.
    You are required to submit your assignment to Turnitin. Once you review your results and make any needed changes, submit your assignment for grading. Keep your matching text to less than 25 percent, and provide in-text citations on your slides for the sources, and a reference slide at the end of the presentation.Note: Your instructor may also use the Writing Feedback Tool to provide feedback on your writing.
