Video Role Play: Provision of feedback on psychometric test results


Abstract

This role play provides an opportunity to observe a model of feedback that can be used during a one-to-one meeting with a student.   Declan Fitzgerald, Chartered Occupational Psychologist, demonstrates a  model for  the provision of feedback to a student on the results of an ability test.  The video provides  only one example of how feedback may be provided to a student. 

The student portrayed as Casey Black is a fictional character played by Robbie Glynn, currently a Leaving Certificate student.  Declan Fitzgerald portrays the role of a guidance counsellor for the purpose of this interview. 

The role play demonstrates how a feedback conversation can:
-  Reflect what ability tests can and cannot do in broad context of career guidance
-  Use a 'concrete' approach to sharing test results
-  Ensure the test taker is an active partner in the feedback conversation

Special thanks to ENACT for providing facilities to record this role play and for providing the personnel and expertise which made the recording possible.  

Approximately 13 minutes.
