Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapters 11 and 12 in the textbook. There are multiple instruments to measure personality (both objective and projective) that are reviewed in the textbook. For this discussion, assume the role of a human resources manager tasked with hiring several employees for a newly formed life insurance sales company. Your job is to interview and hire an accountant and a district manager who will be responsible for supervising 25 employees. Unfortunately, the company has limited financial resources, so you are only able to use one measure of personality as part of your interview process. In your discussion post, describe the personality measure you selected and thoroughly explain the rationale for your choice. Identify relevant reliability and validity information about the personality measure you selected and specify how the reliability and validity information supports the applicability of the instrument for each of the above positions. In your rationale be sure to describe the properties and applications of the personality test as they apply to your role in hiring these employees. Identify at least one methodological consideration concerning the reliability and validity of administering the measure you have chosen. In addition to the required reading, research a minimum of one peer-reviewed article from the Ashford University Library to support your choice of subtests.
Prior to beginning work on this discussion, view the video Betting on the Future, (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. read the required articles by Luxton, Pruitt & Osenbach (2014) and Novotney (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. (2011), and review the required websites. In addition, research a minimum of one peer-reviewed article from the Ashford University Library which reports research findings on the reliability or validity of mental health testing via telehealth. Do note that it is customary to include any of the following remote methods under the framework of telehealth: telephone, video conferencing, interactive websites, email, or online chat. For this discussion, you will take on the role of a mental health professional in private practice who is considering providing telehealth assessment services. You are researching the types of services you could provide in order to present your ideas to one of the worlds leading healthcare investors introduced in this weeks assigned video. In your initial post, begin with a paragraph briefly summarizing the types of mental health assessments which can be provided over the phone or through other remote methods such as video conferencing, interactive websites, email, or online chat. Analyze your peer-reviewed journal research article(s) and explain the types of testing and assessments that are best suited for telehealth delivery. Evaluate the ethical issues involved in providing psychological assessment and testing services via telehealth methods. Research typical costs for comparable in-person psychological assessment and testing services and report your findings to the class. Identify a menu of psychological assessment services you would like to offer and explain how your model would deliver cost-effective and competent assessment services in comparison to in-person assessment services. Distinguish any specific types of psychological testing that should not be administered remotely and explain your rationale.
