What is your research question?

Assessment Worksheet

Research existing psychological assessments (MMPI-II, Weschler IQ Scales, etc.) to identify three measures of the constructs you are studying for your research question. (Please respond to #4 for all three of your psychological assessments)

  1. What is your research question? (0.5 point)

My research question is about depression among suicide victims, drug usage, and environmental effects.

  1. Write a testable hypothesis for your research question. (0.5 point)

One of the research hypotheses will be depression among suicide victims, as well as drug use and environmental influences. Even with mind-altering medications, all depressed suicide victims will be unable to control their environment, according to the null hypothesis.

  1. What constructs is your research question investigating? (1 point)

Bad surroundings, such as drug-abusing situations, will be examined in my research topic, as well as the mental and physical impacts of an individual who encounters these adverse environments and how these link to their suicidal thoughts.

  1. Provide the following information for three measures of the constructs:

a. What is the test? Include the name and authors. (1 point)

• The Personal Experience Inventory for Adults, created by Mark Shriver and Claudia Wright, will be the initial test.
• The following exam, Interview for the Retrospective Assessment of the Onset and Course of Suicide and Other Psychoses, will be administered by Allen Hess and Janet Smith.
• The final exam, Inventory of Drug-Taking Situations, will be conducted by Tony Cellucci and Glenn Gelman.

b. How is the test used? Include the target population, how the test is administered, and what information it provides. (2 points)

• The Personal Experience Inventory for Adults is a questionnaire developed to learn about a person’s abuse problems or patterns. People aged 19 and up are eligible to take the test.
• The Interview for the Retrospective Assessment of the Onset and Course of Suicide and Other Psychoses is used to assess suicidal people’ symptoms and social development.
• The Inventory of Drug-Taking Scenarios is a tool for assessing individuals and profiling specific drug-taking situations over the course of a year. Drug addicts are the target group.

c. What is known about the test’s psychometric properties, such as reliability and validity? (1 point)

• Internal consistency and test-retest reliability are among the reliabilities used by the PEI. The comparability scores and consequent sampling down on the assessment corroborate the authenticity of the inventory.
• The interjudge, interrater, and test-retest reliability are all used in the IRAOS measures. The inventory’s veracity has been a source of contention. The substance was valid, but the assessment was self-evident. On the other hand, assuming the ICD-10 study was well-founded, the ICD-10 and IRAOS are both genuine.
The IDTS calculates a total score by combining the scales with a variety of self-reported intake, dependency, and social environment factors. The Negative Scenario scores are involved in the pattern of intensity with substance misuse and IDTS. The validity and reliability norms are not provided.

d. Why would the test be useful for your study? (2 points)

• Why The PEI will be beneficial to my research since it will aid in identifying the various consequences of addiction, as well as the challenges and patterns that are related to addiction.
• The IRAOS will assist me in detecting the symptoms of suicide with drug abuse, as well as their social development.
• I’ll use the IDTS in my research to help me detect addiction and social/environmental factors that affect addicts.
