Psychological Assessment

Psychological Assessment refers to any type of standardized, mental testing or behavioral evaluation. Assessments are used to measure intelligence, development, personality, attitudes, and cognitive, social, or emotional functioning, and are also used by clinicians to diagnosis disorders. Psychological assessments may take the form of a questionnaire, an interview, or observational methods. The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, the Beck Depression Inventory, and the Neonatal Behavioral Assessment Scale are all examples of psychological assessments.
