Teaching approaches
Unit in a nutshell
In this unit, students will become familiar with a range of tests used in psychological assessment
across the areas of clinical, educational/developmental, neuropsychology, forensic,
personality and organisational psychology. They will also learn how to administer, score and
interpret some of the tests that are commonly used. The focus of this unit is on individual
differences and abilities. Skills will be developed through quizzes and a psychological report, and
knowledge will be assessed via an exam.

Problem-based learning
Role play
Technological requirements
Students can bring their laptop computers and/or tablets to class although these will not be needed
to participate in class activities.
Further unit information
Monash University uses credit points not only to define its degree requirements but also to provide
guidance on how to plan your study time. One credit point implies about one hour per week of
student effort over the year or two hours per week over a semester; a six credit point subject
taught in a semester, therefore, implies twelve hours work a week in varying combinations of
formal class contact, practical or group activities and private study.
Student evaluations of this unit
One of the formal ways students have to provide feedback on teaching and their learning
experience is through the Student Evaluation of Teaching and Units (SETU) survey. The feedback
is anonymous and provides the Faculty with evidence of aspects that students are satisfied with
and areas for improvement.
