  • Apply considerations of any  information or sections that you found missing in the report as well as  information that you found to be not relevant, i.e., elements that  should have been omitted. In other words, what could have been added to  or excluded from the report?
  • Discuss the  ways in which cultural sensitivity and aspects of diversity were  addressed in the report, including any ways in which the report could be  made more culturally sensitive and include greater considerations of  elements of diversity.
  • Identify and describe at least two additional psychological  assessments or measures that you would have administered to obtain  additional relevant information for the report. Feel free to list more  than two as appropriate. Be sure to also consider cultural implications  of the tests which you select.

As  you evaluate the report be sure to avoid using the word “I” in formal  writing. Remember, the reader of your assignment will know it is your  voice since you are the author of your paper. Also, consider the  difference between the following two statements, “I think the report  needed to have included . . .” and “The report needed to have included .  . .” The first statement has some redundancy by the writer’s use of the  word “I,” whereas the second statement displays greater confidence.

Your  essay should rely upon at least seven scholarly resources from the  professional literature that are cited in APA format. The literature may  include the Argosy University online library resources; relevant  textbooks; peer-reviewed journal articles; and websites created by  professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu or .gov).
