Exercise B

Choosing and Interpreting a Clinical Test

Megan, a second-year counseling graduate student, had just gotten her first assignment in her graduate internship placement in the Community Counseling Center (CCC). Dr. Chavez, her clinical supervisor, had given her a set of two standardized psychological tests she was to administer to a CCC client who was referred by a judge from the county’s family court system. The client had a history of verbally abusing his wife and children. In addition, he had threatened physical harm against his family on numerous occasions. Fortunately, however, he had never actually followed through on his verbal threats of physical violence. Given the client’s history, the judge wanted to refer the client for anger management treatment. In order for the client to qualify for the court-ordered treatment, however, he had to score “sufficiently high” on at least one of two psychological tests. Ultimately, it was up to Dr. Chavez and Megan to determine if he had scored sufficiently high on the tests and to make a recommendation to the judge as to whether the client should be referred to the anger management treatment program.

Megan administered the two psychological tests to the client. She then scored the tests. As it turned out, for both tests the client had fallen just a point or two below the cutoff set by the court to be considered “sufficiently high” to warrant participation in the court-ordered anger management treatment program. However, Megan had just completed her graduate measurement course the term before. She knew that a test taker’s observed score is only an estimate of his or her true underlying level on the construct being measured. To her, it seemed wrong to take the test at “face value” in that there is always measurement error associate with any psychological test. What about the other information in this client’s history? Feeling a little frustrated, Megan thought it was time to discuss the case further with Dr. Chavez.

Questions to Ponder. Provide detailed responses to the following questions, using material from your readings to support your answers.



  1. If you were Megan, what other information would you want to know about the tests in order to make the best decision possible?

  2. Should the nature of the offense have any impact on how Megan determines if the client is “sufficiently high” on the psychological measures? If yes, how so? If no, why not?

  3. How should (or could) the other information in the client’s file be combined with the test data to make a recommendation to the court?

Hi,

Thank you.

I'm sorry to say that I do not have the necessary background information to be able to answer these specific questions. I was expecting questions that were more mathematical and/or statistical in nature. I don't know what your course is looking for in the answers for these questions.

I'll opt out at this point. Perhaps one of the other experts here will be familiar with this course material and may be able to help you with these.

Regards,

Ryan

Can you tell me what course this is for? When is it due? Does it have a length requirement?
