Describe specific subtests you anticipate being challenging to administer and why they might be so.

Assessment Administration

The first step in learning to administer a cognitive assessment instrument is to review its accompanying manual. You may have to do this several times, and you may find that, while following standardized procedures may seem straightforward, it takes time to learn. You may also find that some procedures are more difficult than others. As you read the manual, consider which areas may cause difficulty for you.

For this Discussion, consider any concerns you have regarding your ability to follow standardized procedures. Which specific subtests do you anticipate being most challenging? How will you minimize mistakes as you begin administration?

Post by Day 4 a description of areas of concern you have regarding your ability to adhere to standardized procedures. Next, describe specific subtests you anticipate being challenging to administer and why they might be so. Finally, explain steps you would take to minimize these challenges as you begin administration.

Read a selection of your colleagues’ postings.

Respond by Day 6 to at least one colleague’s post in one of the following ways:

  • Respond to a colleague who selected a different area of concern.
  • Support a colleague’s concerns by offering one or more resources from which he or she could learn more about standardized procedures.
  • Suggest additional steps that a colleague might take to minimize challenges of a specific subtest.
