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 My Storybook website (Links to an external site.) to familiarize yourself with this technology. Please review the instructions on the home page for Take a Writing Lesson, Build your Storybook, and Keep your Stories by selecting the link for Try it Now. After you create your free account and develop your story book, make sure you select Publish Public so that you can share your story book. You will be provided a link that you can share in the Week Two Interactive Assignment page so that other students can review your story. Do not select “share” or “download” as those require you to pay, which is not necessary for this assignment. As an alternative, you can develop a PowerPoint presentation with a screenshot of each page of your book for each slide. Please contact your instructor if you have any questions.
Your username will become the professional author name for your book. Therefore, when you register for your My Storybook 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. After you have created your free account and begun developing your tale book, be sure to select Publish Public in order to be able to share your story book with friends and family. You will be provided with a link that you may use to share your tale on the Week Two Interactive Assignment page so that other students can read and discuss it with you. You should avoid clicking on the buttons that say “share” or “download” because doing so will require you to pay, which is not necessary for this project. As an alternative, you might create a PowerPoint presentation in which each slide contains a screenshot of a different page from your book. If you have any questions, please get in touch with your instructor.
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.) (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.
