Discuss Psychological Tests

You could focus your discussion of Chapter 5 around the topic of psychological testing. If so, you might want your students to explore APA's tips on finding information about psychological tests and the ETS Test File.

Some students are quite surprised to find out that research methods are quite important in developing psychological tests.

To help students understand the process of scale construction, you might have them construct their own scale. If you want to refer them to some validated tests, use this link. Alternatively, if you simply want them to try a bunch of psychological tests, here are some links you can use

  1. Psychological tests for student researchers
  2. Queendom via Queendom's site or via the Discovery channel site
  3. all the tests
  4. ABC's of personal growth
  5. emode (perhaps the least serious of these sites)
