Frequently Asked Questions

  • Access to lectures and assignments depends on your type of enrollment. If you take a course in audit mode, you will be able to see most course materials for free. To access graded assignments and to earn a Certificate, you will need to purchase the Certificate experience, during or after your audit. If you don't see the audit option:

    • The course may not offer an audit option. You can try a Free Trial instead, or apply for Financial Aid.
    • The course may offer 'Full Course, No Certificate' instead. This option lets you see all course materials, submit required assessments, and get a final grade. This also means that you will not be able to purchase a Certificate experience.

  • In the first module we will talk about what Psychodiagnostics is as a science: how it was created, when the ordinary knowledge accumulated by mankind was transformed into a scientific discipline; what a significant Psychodiagnostics procedure is; which results it allows you to get and how they can be used. Furthermore, we will talk about Psychological Assessment and about differences between the classical Psychodiagnostics and Psychological Assessment. And also we will determine the precise boundaries of the minimum requirements for ensuring the results of reliability in the diagnostic procedures.

    The second module’s content forms the basis of the professional competence of the practical psychologist. We will talk about tests reliability and validity. I hope that at the end of this module, you will understand that Psychodiagnostics is not only the traditional test with questions like "Are you afraid of the darkness?" and two variants of answers "yes" and "no", but something else. You will know the structure of a Psychological test. And you will understand the meaning of words “the representativeness” and “the psychodiagnostic norms”.

    In the third theme, we consider in detail the five classical approaches to the diagnostics of intelligence. And I also want to remark that Psychodiagnostics as a science and as a practice has begun with Psychodiagnosrics of cognitive abilities. You will know about IQ, Social IQ, EI, EQ and differences between all of them.

    In the fourth module we will take a header ourselves in the classic 20th century Psychodiagnostics. Each month, in the scientific literature there appear new tests and methods of Psychodiagnostics and Assessment. However, if we look at the top 10 of the most popular tests, we face with the good old “friends”, which have been used in the practice of psychology for decades. You will know everything about classical methods of collecting personal characteristics empirical data.

    The fifth theme is devoted to integrative approaches in Psychodiagnostics and Assessment of the 21st century, which involves a continuity of intelligence and a person. We will talk about contemporary psychology diagnostics of giftedness, which involves consideration of intellectual, personal and behavioral characteristics in their unity and interrelation. Also you will know about Interpersonal communication approach to Psychodiagnostics and the narrative approach to personality diagnostics.
