psy 640: week 4 – assignment evaluating objective and projective

 

Evaluating Objective and Projective Asessments

Prior to beginning work on this assignment, review Chapters 8 and 9 in your textbook.

In this assignment, you will compare projective and objective methods  of personality assessment. Research a minimum of three peer-reviewed  articles in the Ashford University Library that were published within  the last 15 years on these techniques. In your paper, you will provide  an evaluation of these techniques organized according to the outline  provided below. Use information from your researched peer-reviewed  articles and required sources to support your work in each section.

Section 1: Objective Personality Assesment

  • Define the term objective in objective methods of personality assessment.
  • Summarize the features of objective methods of personality  assessment, and provide at least three examples of these types of  measures.
  • Explain the assumptions on which objective methods are based, and  provide an analysis of empirical research testing the validity of the  assumptions you identified.
  • Appraise the research exploring the technical adequacy (i.e., reliability and validity) of objective tests.
  • Describe the impact of social and culture variability on the administration and interpretation of objective tests.

Section 2: Projective Personality Assesment

  • Define the term projective in projective methods of personality assessment.
  • Summarize the features of projective methods of personality  assessment, and provide at least three examples of these types of  measures.
  • Explain the assumptions on which projective methods are based, and  provide an analysis of empirical research testing the validity of the  assumptions you identified.
  • Appraise the research exploring the technical adequacy (i.e., reliability and validity) of projective tests.
  • Describe the impact of social and culture variability on the administration and interpretation of projective tests.

Section 3: Synthesis, Conclusions, and Recommendations

  • Write a brief one-paragraph scenario for a fictitious client.  Include the following information: presenting concerns (reason for  referral), age, gender, ethnicity, language(s), and any other  significant information (e.g., military status, health issues, marital  status, sexual orientation, etc.).
  • Debate the arguments supporting and opposing the use of projective  and objective personality assessments with your identified client.
  • Select a minimum of one objective and one projective measure to use  with your client. Compare the use of the selected projective and  objective personality measures with your identified client.
  • Analyze the advantages and limitations of each assessment measure you selected.
  • Compose recommendations to improve the validity of personality assessment.

The Evaluation of Objective and Projective Measures of Personality

  • Must be four to six double-spaced pages in length (not including  title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style as  outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
