This assignment is designed to help you apply psychological assessment concepts

This assignment is designed to help you apply psychological assessment concepts to real life (course learning goal #2). For success with this assignment, you should include what you learned through the week’s reading assignments and instructional video.
Please use the following vignette for this essay:
A middle-aged woman from your church congregation, Margaret, has heard through the grapevine that you are a psychology major at CBU. You have met Margaret and her family briefly a couple times, but you do not know them well. Margaret approaches you after a church service and goes on to explain her 10 year-old daughter was recently recommended to receive a full psychological assessment process at school because she is falling behind and not keeping up with her classmates. Margaret seems distressed and upset, and she repeatedly says “I just don’t know what to do.” She says she has never gone through any kind of “psycho stuff” and doesn’t know what to expect. Margaret asks for your opinion about psychological assessment.
Please write a 3-page essay discussing the vignette above. Please discuss the following questions, and you are free to go beyond these questions as you wish. What are the potential benefits of psychological assessment? What are the potential disadvantages? How might Margaret’s daughter benefit or suffer from this process? Is psychological assessment a precise science? If so, how? If not, how? From a Christian perspective, what concepts or verses might apply to Margaret’s situation?
