Report Writing and Oral Reporting

  • Randy W. Kamphaus
Chapter

Abstract

Effective report writing is taking on increased importance for practicing psychologists. Psychological reports are routinely made available to parents, judges, lawyers, and other nonpsychologists, creating the opportunity for improper interpretation of the results by untrained individuals. Oftentimes, misconceptions, such as parents or others who cling to the notion that the IQ is an entirely genetically based and fixed entity, about intellectual assessment and the nature of intelligence tests make it imperative that psychologists communicate clearly, both orally and in writing.
