This requires a substantive, referenced written response with a minimum of 250 words per DQ. as well as reading the writings of other students and responding to at least their primary postings. Additionally, you must read the writings of all other students and respond in a substantive way to at least two of their primary postings. Your responses should contribute scholarly to the discussion by challenging a position, providing additional support, or taking the debate in a new but reasonable direction.
All DQ responses to be supported by current research, i.e. journal articles published within the last 10 years.
In your DQ responses, do not use recently published journal articles for support; using articles I provide as additional readings do not count toward this requirement. An additional twenty points will be deducted from your weekly points if sources are not properly cited. These sources should be integrated into your response, not simply placed in a sentence within the response.
Research once again the assessment tests you explored in week 2. Who publishes these tests? Do these assessments require certification to administer them? How does one get this certification? How has the validity and reliability of these assessments been established?
Ashe and Lundquist (2010) addressed the legal issues of assessments; while Outtz (2010) explored the common flaws in determining what to assess and the impact a poor choice can have. What insights do both articles provide to you as a future practitioner? What actions can you take to avoid legal issues? What can you do to ensure correct and effective assessments are conducted?
