There will be one 2-hour lecture per week each week of the Session.
All lecture material is examinable (either in the midsession exam or in the final exam).
Recordings of lectures will be made available via Echo. You can download the lecture recording from the iLearn page for the unit.
There are six 2-hour tutorials associated with this unit. Every student will attend one two-hour tutorial each fortnight. Tutorials begin in week 2 and 3 (depending on the stream) of session. Set reading will be required prior to some tutorials.
All tutorial material is assessable either in the assignment or in the final exam.
Attendance at tutorials is strongly advised – the material is assessable, but more importantly, it is in the tutorials that the application of material from lectures is discussed and demonstrated.
Tutorial outlines will be available via the iLearn page for the unit. Make sure that you bring the tutorial outline to each tutorial class. It is recommended that you read the relevant section before going to class.
Any recent text on Psychological Assessment will more than likely cover the main content of the unit. The text that is recommended for the unit in 2016 is:
Shum, D., O'Gorman, J., Myors, B., & Creed, P. (2013). Psychological Testing and Assessment. (Second Edition). Melbourne, Vic.: Oxford University Press.
Supplementary readings may be provided by each lecturer for his/her section of the course. In addition, some of the tutorials have set readings. These and other relevant books and articles should be in Special Reserve. Many of the readings are available via the e-Reserve web page at the library.
You can access the online materials for this unit via iLearn. Announcements will be available once you have logged in. You can link to lecture recordings from the web page as well as download the overheads for each lecture. There will be an active student Forum. The on-line Quizzes can only be accessed from iLearn.
