An ethical decision-making model is a tool that can be used by professionals in psychology to help develop the ability to think through an ethical dilemma and arrive at a responsible and ethical decision. This assignment assesses your application of ethical decision-making by requiring critical thinking and analysis through your recommendations to an ethical dilemma.
Read the following scenario:
You work for a large corporation in human resources as a psychologist. In that capacity, it is your job to select and administer psychological tests that measure intelligence and cognitive ability as part of the employee selection process. The company has been hiring engineers and you notice that in the next group of prospects, many are recent immigrants from Pakistan, Korea, and India. You realize that the standardized tests you have been using do not seem to be culture-neutral and are biased toward native English speakers.
Develop an 8- to 10-slide Microsoft PowerPoint® presentation to corporate managers with detailed speaker notes on the selection process of a culture-neutral assessment. To be clear, a slide should have 5 to 7 concise bullet points. Speaker notes should be included in the speaker’s notes section (on the bottom) of each slide. Speaker notes should be your ‘speech’ and should be no less than 1 to 3 full paragraphs for each slide. In-text citations should be included on every slide and in all speaker notes. An APA formatted reference slide should be included at the end of your presentation. Your cover slide and your reference slide do not count in the 8 to 10 slide count.
Address the following questions or objectives:
Should you use different tests that are less culture-bound?
How would you select assessments that are culture-neutral?
What criteria would you use? What, if any, ethical issues are involved?
How and why would using culturally biased tests be an ethical issue here?
What does the APA Ethics Code say about the importance of culture-neutral assessment?
Include examples of ways in which culture-biased assessments have been problematic.
How would you select tests that are culture-neutral?
Include examples of when culture-biased assessments have been problematic
Explain the consequences of not following the selection process for both the client and psychologist
Describe how the APA decision-making process facilitates more ethical professional behavior.
