This unit provides you with the opportunity to become familiar with a number of psychometric tools that will enable description, conceptualisation, and prediction of relevant aspects of a young person's functioning, behaviour, and personality. You will learn to perform a number of appropriate standardised psychological tests, including the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (5th ed.), across a diverse range of client groups and contexts. Critical self-reflection is also a core component of this unit. In this unit you will explore and apply psychological tests suitable for children and adolescents. This unit also includes a compulsory residential school.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
