Portfolio Assignment: The Role of the Nurse Informaticist in Systems Development and Implementation

Assume you are a nurse manager on a unit where a new nursing documentation system is to be implemented. You want to ensure that the system will be usable and acceptable for the nurses impacted. You realize a nurse leader must be on the implementation team.

Cross Cultural Methods of Test Measurements

Question 1: Explain the process of establishing standardized scores for an assessment instrument.  Include each of the following elements in your discussion, and include a peer-reviewed source that demonstrates establishment of norms for a psychological instrument.

a)    Selection of the norm reference group who should be selected, and why?

d)    Measures of variability
e)    Raw scores
f)    Methods of transforming raw scores into scale scores (discuss at least three)

Question 2: (a)  A researcher has decided to design a test that measures anxiety in job seekers prior to an interview.  Items in the test will be measured using a Likert scale.

Cross Cultural Methods of Test Measurements

Review the American Psychological Association (2017) Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct: Standard 9: Assessment. (https://www.apa.org/ethics/code/index?item=12) Pay particular attention to section 9.07, Assessment by Unqualified Persons.  Psychologists do not promote the use of psychological assessment techniques by unqualified persons, except when such use is conducted for training purposes with appropriate supervision. Also review chapter 2 of the textbook (Gregory, 2016) regarding the history of psychological testing.


In a two- to three-page paper, discuss critical issues that must be considered in assessment, including appropriate training, supervision, confidentiality, standard of care, individual differences, and culture, as well as negative effects that may occur if these standards are not followed.  Also include a discussion of the necessary steps that a student in training should take before administering any assessment instrument.&nbs

Cross Cultural Methods of Test Measurements

Twomajor types of psychological tests listed in Chapter 1 of the textbook (Gregory, 2016).  Discuss the following issues as they relate to each type of test.  If you have taken or administered those tests in the past, you may discuss the issues as they relate to your testing experiences, but please dont provide the results of any tests that you have taken!  Note: The PowerPoint slide presentation (Hansen, 2013) may be helpful for an overview of tests and measurements.

Discuss:
1)    Behavior domain sampled by the test ***
2)    Prediction of nontest behavior***
