This 3 credit course is designed to provide students with an introduction to the principles of psychological testing. Through both didactic instruction and hands-on experience, students will learn about the history, development, theories, and applications of the process of psychological testing and assessment. It is extremely important for students to be aware that this class alone will not qualify students to competently or ethically administer and interpret psychological tests. Rather, the focus of the course is on the acquisition of knowledge related to test theory and test construction that will allow students to evaluate critically the tests considered in the course and those that are currently in use in the field of psychological testing.
