I’m studying and need help with a Psychology question to help me learn.

I have attached the first three assignments, rubric, and a template to this question. Please ensure that the answer focuses on the Strong Interest inventory Standarized Test

Write a six-page report to the court that evaluates a selected test as being appropriate and meeting the intended purpose of the instrument, according to all elements of the Code. Include an abstract and a two-page executive summary that are comprehensible to a layperson.

Assessment 4 Context

In your first assessment, you completed an analysis of three standardized tests for your supervisor with the goal of selecting one that had the greatest potential for use in your professional setting. To complete this task, you focused on the Elements 1–4 of the Joint Committee on Testing Practices’ (2004) Code of Fair Testing Practices in Education for test users. In your second assessment, you completed a technical review for your supervisor and director at your setting. The technical review was conducted on the same test that you recommended at the end of the first assessment to your supervisor. To complete this task, you focused psychometric properties, or reliability and validity, of that test as identified in Element 5 of the code. In your third assessment, your director requested that you provide a further analysis of the selected test by examining the instrument’s items, materials, and available accommodations and modifications. To complete this task, your executive team report focused on Elements 6, 7, and 8 of the code. There is one remaining element to the code: (9) evaluating “the available evidence on the performance of test-takers of diverse subgroups . . .” determining “. . . which performance differences may have been caused by factors unrelated to the skills being assessed.” Similar to your previous research on this test, information gathering and evaluation of this remaining element will require additional searches in the Capella University Library, as well as other resources (for example, Buros Mental Measurements Yearbook and publisher websites). A search for relevant articles may include a keyword search within each review or research article. It may be helpful to do keyword searches within those documents with the following words: fair, fairness, bias, groups, group differences, and diversity. If you are struggling with locating sufficient information about a particular test in regard to an element in this assessment, then you will need to cite the references or reviews involved in your search and identify this element as problematic for your selected test, as it lacks sufficient documentation in the literature for this code or standard.


This assessment is a culmination of the previous assessments you have completed during this course. In this assessment, you will synthesize your previous research as well as conduct research on the final element of the Code, Element 9. Element 9 states that a test user, “evaluate(s) the available evidence on the performance of test takers of diverse subgroups . . . determine(s) to the extent feasible which performance differences may have been caused by factors unrelated to the skills being assessed.” Together, the previous assessments and this current one involving Element 9 will provide you with the data, research, and literature reviews across all nine elements of the Code to assist your decision-making process about the appropriate selection of a test.

For this assessment, you will:



You are a consultant and are called as an expert witness in a court proceeding to evaluate the use of this test for a specific setting and population. The court requests a six-page report—Analysis of (Name of Test)—with an executive summary.

Use the Assessment 4 Template: Report to the Court given in the Required Resources to complete the assignment.

Use the following structure in your assessment:

Title Page
Abstract Page
Analysis of Test to the Code of Fair Testing Practices in Education
Executive Summary

This summary should be comprehensible to layperson.


Include overall recommendations to use the selected test in the field and with populations to be served.


A minimum of nine references are required for this assessment, of which at least five must be of peer-reviewed journal articles. These may include journal articles, literature reviews, MMY reviews, and publisher websites. At least five of the nine references must be from professional journals. It is likely and appropriate that many of these references and citations were included in one or more of your previous assessments. Alternatively, you may want to supplement your paper with current, peer-reviewed journal articles you located after completing an earlier assessment. Such inclusions would also be acceptable.

Additional Requirements

Your assessment should meet the following requirements:
