Intelligence Testing Article Analysis
no new messages Objectives:    InstructionsAssignment FilesGrading  Use the Electronic Reserve Readings, the University Library, or other resources to locate at least three articles concerning intelligence testing. 

Create a brochure for a local elementary school. Consider your audience, as this information would likely be distributed during meetings where a child might have received an intelligence test. Your brochure would be given to parents, guardians, and others to help them better understand the purpose of intelligence testing.

Include the following in your brochure: Provide a brief overview of at least two theories of intelligence related to the content of your selected articles to help your audience understand what intelligence testing accomplishes.Discuss methods of measuring intellectual functioning.Discuss how the concept of intelligence is different from academic achievement. 

Include three credible, peer-reviewed references.

Format the citations in your brochure consistent with APA guidelines.


For this task, you will prepare a mock interview. Assume you were  asked to interview a researcher about the merits and weaknesses of  quasi-experimental designs. These designs include (a) single group  post-test only designs, (b) single group pretest/posttest design, (c)  single-group time-series design, (d) nonequivalent control group  posttest-only design, (e) nonequivalent control group pretest/posttest  design and (f) multiple-group time-series design.

Your interview should be conversational in nature and critically  discuss the following questions regarding each of the major  Quasi-Experimental Designs: What are the merits of each of the specific designs?

When should you use each of the specific designs?

What is the statistical analysis that is used for each of the specific designs?

What are the limitations of each of the specific designs?

What is one research question for each of the specific designs (using a topic area that you are interested in)?

For your mock interview, utlize all of this week’s required readings to illustrate points throughout your interview.

Length: 5-7 pages (Not including title and reference pages)

Your paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas  and concepts by providing new thoughts and  insights relating directly to the topic. Your response should reflect  scholarly writing and current APA standards.

Treatment of Schizophrenia and Depression


aking on the role of the expert in the treatment of schizophrenia or depression, you will prepare a presentation for a group of physicians who are seeking your opinion on the treatment of patients with these disorders. For this interactive assignment you will create and upload a 5- to10-slide PowerPoint presentation as well as a five-minute screencast of the presentation to share with your peers.

For this presentation, select either schizophrenia or depression as the basis for your presentation. Begin by creating your PowerPoint presentation. In the presentation, include information which explains the neurotransmitter theory behind the disorder and how the drugs used to treat the disorder affect those neurotransmitter systems.  Evaluate the risk and benefits of treating a patient with the most common type of medication and of not using drugs to treat the patient. In your evaluation, examine issues such as the rate of success with the most common drugs used as well as the incidence of side effects with these same drugs, including mortality associated with drug use. Then consider not using medications to treat the disorder. Take into account the natural course of the illness, the rate of spontaneous recovery, and the rate of mortality when untreated. You may also incorporate the use of other modes of treatment into your evaluation.

Your PowerPoint must include your presenter notes.
