Abstract

This report provides an overview of an educational psychology internship at Cabot College of Applied Arts and Technology, and Continuing Education. The placement section addresses the setting, the goals and objectives, the implementation and evaluation of the internship, and the intern's personal reflections. The research component addresses the effectiveness of the Canadian Adult Achievement Test (CAAT) in predicting college grade point average for mature students. Results indicate that, for this population, scores obtained on the CAAT were poor predictors of GPA Limitations of the current study and recommendations for future research are also discussed.
