Design an assessment battery for either an adult or a child, your choice, including instruments addressing the
following areas:
a) Cognitive functioning
b) Academic functioning
c) Social-Emotional functioning
d) Adaptive functioning
Use both objective and projective instruments for social-emotional functioning, and describe your reasoning in
your choices of specific projective tests. You are not expected to be intimately familiar with any of the
instruments chosen for this assignment; use any information in your text, in product descriptions, or in any of the
other reading material including instructor announcements to help in your description and selection of
instruments.
If you are unfamiliar with instruments (tests), or unsure about which instruments are used for which areas of
functioning, use your text and also online resources for help. Following are a couple of resources which may be
helpful in choosing instruments; there are search options in each site to assist in selecting instruments:
https://www.pearsonassessments.com/professional-assessments/products.html
https://www.parinc.com
In searching for instruments in the above sites, keep in mind that “achievement” is often used to describe
academic functioning.
In writing this paper, first list the area of functioning and each instrument selected to address the area; use the
“Evaluation Procedures” section of sample reports in the text on pages 745-772 as models, adding the area of
functioning prior to each instrument (or list of instruments).
Rather than writing this as a paragraph as in the text examples, write the area of functioning and the instruments
used in outline form, or as a list. Next, write a three-page well-written double-spaced paper in narrative form.
