Abstract

The internship placement component of the Masters of Education (School Psychology) was completed in Harlow, Essex. England. The report has two components: (1) a placement component and (2) a research component. An overview of educational psychology in Britain (specifically West Essex), the intern's goals and objectives, and the internship experience (activities and learning) are outlined in the placement component of the internship report. -- The research component consists of a comparative analysis of assessment practices of educational psychologists in St. John's. Newfoundland and West Essex, England. Eight (8) educational psychologists (four from each setting) were interviewed. Results indicate that educational psychologists in both settings reported similarities in assessment practices such as common reasons for referrals. However, educational psychologists in both settings indicated that the referral process, assessment practices, and time spent in assessment activities differed. Limitations of the research are also discussed.
