Interactive Assignment

In  this interactive assignment, you will create a story for children to educate them about psychological assessment. To begin, select a targeted developmental or reading level pre-K through grade 6. Review the elements required for each section of your storybook below. Visit the Storybird website (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. to familiarize yourself with this technology. You may review the Storybird Quick-Start Guide (Links to an external site.) Links to an external site. for additional assistance with using this platform.

Your  username will become the professional author name for your book. Therefore, when you register for your Storybird account it is recommended that you use the following format for your username: first  initial followed by last name (e.g., JSmith). If you receive a message  that your username has been taken, it is recommended you include your  middle initial (e.g., JASmith). Do not use Internet handles and/or other  unprofessional appearing pseudonyms.

Review the information in  Chapter 5 of your textbook corresponding to the assessments appropriate  for the age group you selected and review the Mental Health Assessment (Links to an external site.) Links to an external site. (2013) article for examples of information provided to the public about  psychological testing. You may choose any appropriate title for your  story. Be sure to address each of the following questions in your storybook in an age-appropriate manner:

  • Why is the character in the story being referred for testing?
  • Who will conduct the assessment?
  • What is being measured?
  • How long will testing take?
  • Who  will be present during the assessment process? If not in the room,  where will parents and/or guardians be while the character in the story  is being tested?
  • How will the results be used? Who will have  access to the results (e.g., medical doctor, family, the court,  teachers), and why? This will vary depending on the character and plot  in your story.
  • How will the tests be taken? 
  • What will  be the outcome of the assessment? How will the information be used? How  might this information impact the life of the character in your story?

Include  content to address any developmentally appropriate fears that individuals of the age group you selected may have. For example, young children commonly associate going to the doctor with getting a shot.

Be  sure to include all the required material from the instructions above  in your online storybook. Once you have created your storybook, include  the link in your initial post. In your initial post, note the age or  grade level for the target audience of the story. Briefly analyze and  comment on the challenges and benefits related to explaining  psychological assessment concepts using language that is developmentally  appropriate for children. Compare at least two assessment instruments  used to assess intelligence or achievement for the age group you  selected. Include in-text citations and references for all sources used.

Note:  It is highly recommended you complete all written work in a separate document first and then cut and paste the required content into your online storybook. This will allow you to edit and save your work  separately from the online storybook, should any technical failures  occur. This approach will also allow you to work on your content without  having to remain connected to the Internet, which will make it easier  to develop and edit your content prior to publishing it to your online  storybook.
