    Using the website http://buros.unl.edu/buros/jsp/search.jsp, select a psychological assessment instrument in your field of interest that measures the particular variable you chose in thread one.

    Note: Do not purchase a review of any test. You will use the Buros website to look up the name and brief description of a test and then conduct further research on your own about this test.

    Once you have selected this instrument, locate an academic article that either 1) reports on the standardization of the instrument, or 2) uses the instrument in the study. Based on this information, answer the following questions:

    1. What is the instrument you have selected?

    2. Describe the standardization sample:

    a. What is the sample size?
    b. What are the sample demographics (age range, SES, any descriptive variables)?
