Personality, Intelligence, or Educational Test
Personality, Intelligence, or Educational Test research papers take a vast amount of time to outline and write. Here is a suggestion on how Paper Masters lays out an assignment like that.
Using empirical references as the basis of your review, research either a standardized personality, intelligence or educational test and complete a summary critique/report.
The review should include: general information about the test including title, author and publisher; a description of the test content, purpose, structure, administration and scoring guidelines; an evaluation of the reliability and validity of the test; a critique of the strengths and weaknesses of using the test in an applied setting; and an analysis of the multicultural application of the test.
Your paper must utilize a minimum of 8 references; 5 of these references must be empirical, peer-reviewed, research articles (empirical references). As such, it is NOT appropriate to select an online test; you must select a published test in which there is information available on the reliability and validity.
