Short Paper – Client Results
Second part of previous assignment.
Module Eight Assignment Guidelines
Overview: This assignment will allow you to consider ways to deliver the results of an assessment in an ethical and strength-based manner. You will be using the results from a previous assignment and transforming them into a transcript that could be used with a real-life client.
Prompt: Before you begin this assignment, revisit the short paper you wrote for Module Five, in which you analyzed the results of Bob’s intelligence and achievement testing. Specifically, you identified his strengths and weaknesses related to the WRAT-4 and WASI-2. Elements of your paper included Bob’s
strengths and weaknesses, how his strengths and weaknesses applied to his overall functioning, and suggestions or recommendations for him.
For this assignment, you will be using the elements from that paper and turning them into a written or verbal transcript, as if you were delivering the results to Bob in real life. This must be done in an ethical manner, with the client’s best interests at the forefront of the delivery. You will be providing a review of the
results in layman’s terms, using strength-based and nonjudgmental language and focusing on the summary of results, the use of strength-based language, the summary of recommendations, and an accurate portrayal of the findings.
Your assignment must be submitted as a written transcript, an audio recording, or a video. There is no
Page requirement or time requirement for this assignment as long as all critical elements are visited. Remember that your intended audience is Bob and not your instructor, so remember to speak directly to
Bob when delivering the results. You should use the terms “you,” “your,” and “yours.”
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
I. Summary of Results: Results from Module Five Short Paper are summarized in a manner that is organized and ethical.
II. Use of Strength-Based Language: Appropriate, ethical language is used to speak to the patient.
III. Summary of Recommendations: Recommendations from Module Five Short Paper are summarized in a manner that is organized and ethical.
IV. Accurate Portrayal of Findings: Results and recommendations are accurately portrayed to the patient.
