PSYR 8340 - Cognitive Assessment


(5 cr.)
Students in this course are introduced to historical and current theories of intellectual functioning. Students can critically analyze issues related to cognitive ability and achievement and develop competency in the administration, scoring, and interpretation of various standardized instruments designed to assess cognitive and intellectual functioning. Students review and prepare written reports that summarize, interpret, and integrate assessment results with recommendations for prevention and intervention. There is an emphasis on ethical test use in a diverse society and linking assessment results to appropriate interventions and practice. This course is provided in-residence, which means that students divide their time between online activities and activities completed in-residence, with the majority of the instruction occurring face-to-face during the in-residence class meetings.
