Unit description:

Provides an advanced coverage of two core areas: psychological assessment and intelligence and aptitude as well as an exploration of the relationship between personality and cognitive/learning style. Lectures in psychological assessment focus on the assessment of adults and provide an overview of the range of assessment approaches, to promote an understanding of fundamental concepts in assessment and a critical awareness of issues pertaining to the use of assessment data. Lectures in individual differences consider key issues in intelligence and aptitude as well as an exploration of the relationship between personality and cognitive/learning style. In laboratory classes students critically examine issues in assessment, look at the uses and limitations of assessment data. Students gain hands-on experience of assessment approaches and the measurement of human abilities and personality.
