Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

demonstrate knowledge of types and uses of psychological tests

demonstrate an understanding of cultural, societal and ethical issues surrounding psychological testing including factors that may unfairly bias assessment and some potential solutions
