Final project – detailed solution

Final Project:Test Report

For your Final Project, you complete a psychological assessment project consisting of two parts. First, you design an original testing instrument. Then, instead of gathering data on your own test, you are provided with a set of test data to analyze. You compile the description of your test and the results of your analysis of the provided dataset into a 5- to 7-page APA Results Section report.

Your Project report (your APA Results Section) must include:

· Your construct, test specifications, and test items

· Statistical analysis on dataset provided (MoneyData.sav — found in the Week 2 Resources), including analysis of factor analysis, classical statistics, and reliability and validity measures

Your Final Project will be graded on a 20-point scale and is worth 30% of your final grade.

The Final Project is due by Day 7 of Week 10. Although the Final Project is not due until Week 10, you should become familiar with the project requirements and have them in mind as you proceed through the course. Many of the Discussions, Application Assignments, and Knowledge Assessments are building blocks for your Final Project.

The Final Project will be evaluated according to all four indicators in the Application Assignment and Final Paper Writing Rubric located in the Course Info area. Be sure that the Final Project is written using APA format.

Information on scholarly writing may be found in the APA Manual and at the Walden Writing Center website. Also see the “Academic Integrity” and “Guidelines and Policies” areas on the left navigation bar.
