In this presentation, students will first provide an introduction, noting population of interest and a rationale for the instrument chosen (e.g. what are the needs of this population? Why did you select this instrument? What is your experience with this instrument? Why would this instrument be useful for this population?). The introduction should be grounded in the scholarly literature on the issues, population, etc. Keep this introduction brief; 2-3 slides at most.
Next, students will evaluate the instrument by answering the prompts provided in the table below:

We will learn more about these resources in class.
Students are highly encouraged to make use of the Mental Measurement Yearbook database. This database can be accessed through the Library Guide within the Blackboard Course. • Please note, students should not simply copy the information from the sources directly into the presentation but provide a summary of the most important information in their own words and cite references as appropriate on each slide, and within a reference list. • Finally, students will conclude with a summary of what they gained from this overall process. This summary should address 2 areas: • First, students should provide concluding thoughts about the instrument (e.g. what do you think about this instrument after having reviewed it in-depth? How might this instrument be useful for their population/ issues? How might this instrument be used with other instruments?) • Next, students will want to comment on their personal learning experience with this assignment (e.g. How did this process help you gain knowledge and skill in evaluating assessment instruments? How confident are you in evaluating instruments for use with clients/ students?). Keep this conclusion section brief; 2- 3 slides at most.
