It is not unusual for clients to receive standardized test results and be confused by or misinterpret the data presented. For this assignment, you will examine two case scenarios with two different clients, both of whom are dissatisfied or upset with the test results they received. For each case scenario, you will write a response that explains how you would address each client’s concern. Do not write a hypothetical counseling session between yourself and the client. Accurately explain to the client how to properly interpret these standardized test results.

In order to complete this assignment, you will apply the knowledge you have gained in this class thus far. Write down all of the information presented in each scenario.

First scenario: Does anything stand out as you review the context? Is there anything in the client’s current circumstances (see your list) that would influence the test results? Assess whether the results may or may not be accurate. What are your recommendations to the client?

Second scenario: The process is simpler. How are achievement test scores reported? Does the client understand the meaning of the scores? What are your recommendations to the client?

This assignment must be no more than 1½ pages (not including title page and/or reference page if needed). Use APA formatting for the font, title/reference page, margins, section headings, etc.

Contemplate how you would discuss the following situations. Write a narrative of what you would communicate to each client.

1. The client is a 17-year-old male high school student who has been in counseling for three sessions. The presenting concern was related to stress and insomnia. The client reports he is feeling a lot of stress related to his schoolwork and keeping up his grades as well as his participation in team sports. The client has never received less than an A in any class since entering high school and takes mostly honors-level courses. The client plans to attend Yale

    VI. Results and Discussion In this exercise, the goal was to produce acetylsalicylic acid through the organic synthesis from the reaction of salicylic acid to acetic anhydride, the starting materials. Instead of using acetic acid, acetic anhydride was used as solvent since the anhydride reacting with water to form acetic acid tends to drive the reaction to the right. It results from the elimination of a molecule of water from two molecules of acetic acid (see Fig. 11.2). Figure 11.3 below…

What a thought) but on how I…

Students across the United States are compared based on their race, behavior, home environment, brain thickness, and culture to gather data. These aspects lead to the creation of an achievement gap, which causes students to feel obligated to perform a certain way. By reducing the importance of these factors, children…
