Principles of Assessment for Counselling

Principles and constructions of assessment, and ethical and diversity considerations are discussed in the context of current issues and areas of practice in counselling. Students become familiar with selected standardized tests frequently used in counselling and consider questions around formal and informal assessment. Development of a critical perspective in regard to assessment conceptualisation, purposes, methods, and issues is fostered.
