Applied Final Project (Authentic Assessment)

In this course, you will complete an applied final project rather than taking a traditional proctored final exam. You will integrate the information you have acquired during the course with insights you have gained. The instructions for this assessment (a reference letter) and the rubric that will be used to grade your submission are posted below. You may use this project in constructing your e-portfolio in PSYC 495 capstone course.

Reference Letter

Purpose: You will demonstrate an understanding of the basic theories and techniques of counseling psychology, identify the characteristics of an effective helper, and discuss ethical attitudes and codes relevant to psychology.

Guidelines: Fast-forward ten years. You have just graduated with a doctorate from a counseling psychology program. You are applying for a position with a foundation-supported community health center.

Rather than asking you to submit multiple reference letters, the health center wants you to have one instructor from your graduate program write a comprehensive letter describing all aspects of your educational journey, your effectiveness as a counselor, and your ability to act ethically in a variety of circumstances.

You approach your training director, Dr. Smith, and ask for a letter to be submitted with your application packet. Dr. Smith agrees to your request, and so you give Dr. Smith the instruction sheet below. For this project, you must take on the role of Dr. Smith and write an effective, professional letter (including appropriate salutation and closing) that will convince the community health center to hire you. The letter must cover all areas requested by the foundation and emphasize your mastery of the counseling psychology discipline.

Here is the instruction sheet:

I might be able to help but need a little more information to do so.

How long should this reference letter be?

Is there a textbook you're using for this course?

If not, which characteristics and traits should be highlighted in this letter?

Must this letter use cited references?


Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Introduction to counseling an art and science perspective 4ed. Is the textbook and the letter needs to be 3-4done pages.


I can help! However, I need some information to do so.

I need the courses you have had and the grades. If you cannot provide that, then you will have to add that to the letter. I'll highlight where. Is that okay?

Please let me know. Thanks! Smile DXJ
