Short paper - Psychological testing

PSY 550 Short Paper Guidelines and Rubric

Overview:In this short paper, you will investigate what makes a good test and identify the various aspects of a good test. This will help you understand what goes into test development, why people choose a test, the advantages and limitations of tests, and who tests are developed for. It is important for you to understand this information in order to provide an analysis/evaluation of the chosen tests for the final project (including why the tests could answer the referral question, whether the tests are appropriate, 

and what the strengths and limitations of the test are).

Prompt:In this 3-to 5-page paper, you will explore the various aspects of a “good” test and address the following questions:

·How do developers make a test a good test?

·How do developers ensure validity and reliability?

·What are some cultural, environmental, and ethical considerationswhen creating a test?

·How is a test normed for a population?

·What are the differences between self-reported and administered tests? What are the strengths and weaknesses of each?

Guidelines for Submission:Your paper should be a 3- to 5-page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. Be sure to cite any references in APA format.
