Child Volunteers Needed!

A George Mason University school psychology Master’s student is looking for children ages 6-16 to take part in graduate student intellectual assessment training. Student has received a criminal background check prior to entry into the program. Course instructor: Ellen W. Rowe, PhD.

• Children ages 6-16 who will not need a standardized assessment with the WISC-IV, Stanford-Binet V, or any other intellectual assessments within the next year. A child who has already taken any of these tests this year is fine.
• Child’s home or George Mason University Center for Psychological Services (Fairfax, VA)
• September-December 2007
• Approximately 3-4 hours one time commitment
• Flexible schedule (at your convenience)
What is Required of Volunteers:
• A practice intellectual assessment
• Small prize provided to child after completion of assessment
• No likely risks; child may experience some test anxiety if unfamiliar with testing procedures. All data is used anonymously and destroyed following course completion.
• No direct benefits, but child will gain exposure to individualized testing environment and assist graduate student training.


If interested, please call graduate student Michal at (240) 277-6961, or email at motten@gmu.edu.

Go by the Target store in Burke. You can test all the little brats that run up and down the aisles screaming and knocking things over why mommy yuppie looks on with a smile.

It is a formal test, not an observation. If interested, please email or call me at motten@gmu.edu or (240) 277-6961 .

I prefer not to offer money because I am a poor graduate student living completely off of loans. However, I will give your kid a little prize for participating. Knowing that you helped further a grad studen't education should be enough for a parent to do it.
