please 4 Paragraphs for each assignment and two references. I provided 2 for assignment 1& 4
If you have not already done so, review the “Strong Interest Inventory Profile and Interpretive Report,” linked in the Resources for this discussion. Describe how you would present the assessment results for Jane Sample. Be certain to provide a description of what the inventory measures, including what it can and cannot determine. As a final task, incorporate Osborn’s (2012) cross-cultural research to address ethical considerations in administering career assessments to diverse populations.
Review the “Strong Interest Inventory Profile and Interpretive Report,” prepared for Jane Sample in preparation for the first discussion in this unit.
Achievement and Aptitude Assessment
Achievement and aptitude assessments serve distinct, but potentially complimentary purposes. Both are often administered in a group setting. Summarize how these assessments are distinguished in professional practice, including the implications of group administration. Incorporate one scholarly peer-reviewed article from the Capella Library addressing the application of achievement or aptitude assessments in counseling settings.
Applying Assessment Results
As part of the study activity for this unit, you completed the COPE Inventory and scored your own results. This assessment tool is a research instrument without norms or standardized scores. After reviewing the article by Carver et al., discuss what strategies you used to interpret your results. You do not need to reveal what your specific results were. If you were to use this assessment tool with a client, how could the results help a client make changes to their coping strategies?
Read Carver, Weintraub, and Scheier’s 1989 article, “Assessing Coping Strategies: A Theoretically Based Approach,” from Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.
Personality Assessment Techniques
Personality assessment can utilize objective (structured) or projective techniques. Explain how these techniques are different and why results from both types of tests may provide a richer set of data. How could this data apply in the counseling setting where you will work?
