Skills to be acquired in this module
**Goals of module:** Students will acquire specific knowledge about psychological assessment and will be trained to utilize this knowledge within a research context and in applied settings. With respect to research applications they will learn about traditional and modern test theories and about their usage in the domain of test construction and the systematic design of interviews and observational methods. From the perspective of applied assessment, students will reflect on the assessment process as a whole. They will learn how to analyze cases (“case conceptualization”), how to plan and conduct the information assessment phase, how to record and summarize collected data and how to integrate across the multitude of information in order to draw conclusions about the case given specific diagnostic strategies (status vs. process assessment and norm oriented vs. criterion oriented assessment, including classificatory decisions). Finally, students will learn about the requirements of report generation in written an oral form given a specific applied context. Ethical guidelines and quality norms will be an implicit topic in all courses in the module. **Competencies:** + Neuropsychological / neurophysiological knowledge + interdisciplinary kowledge & thinking + ethics / good scientific practice / professional behavior + critical & analytical thinking
