Ethical, Legal and Cultural Issues in Administering Psychological Tests
Psychologists need to consider Ethical, Legal and Cultural issues in administering psychological tests. Part of the Ethical considerations in testing involves obtaining informed consent from all the test takers or the subject. We should ask permission from the subject and they should be informed on the things that they’ll be taking and they should agree on the terms given to them. Incursion of privacy is also one of the issues to be considered. Subjects have the right to refuse answering questions that they think is too personal. They have the right to set limits. The psychologist is responsible for protecting the subject’s privacy. He/She should treat all experimental data confidentially. All information collected should be kept private even the smallest things because the subjects have their rights to privacy. The subjects also have the right to know their test results.
In Legal Considerations, we should consider if we are qualified to use it. We need to ask these questions: Was the material bought? Is it sufficient to make a conclusion about its results? Are you in the right position to make conclusions about results? Is the person capable of making right conclusions? And etc.
Lastly, we also have to consider Cultural Considerations. The tests should be appropriate to all test takers, but almost all Psychological Tests westerns. We have to know if it is appropriate for Asians.
This (obviously) is an armchair case, intended to show dramatically the difference between profit and cash flow from operations. The case has mechanistic patterns built into it to help students see what is going on: relatively rapid growth is causing cash to be tied up in receivables and inventories faster than it is regenerated from collections. Although the case may seem trivial (at least after the calculations have been made) because of these mechanistic patterns, in fact many businesses have had severe (sometimes fatal) financial
