THE EVALUATION PROCESS:Completing a psychological assessment for an individual involved in a court case,whether it be a defendant, victim, or witness, can be very useful in the case by adding scientific data, evaluation results, professional recommendation, truthful information, etc.In fact, some research shows that with a proper evaluation by a psychologist, utilizing their own knowledge and assessments, will better determine if eye witness statements area reconstructed/suggested memory or a legitimate memory (Schooler, Gerhard & Loftus,1986). The results from a psychological assessment can be used in combination with the other evidence submitted in a case.As the psychologist doing the assessment, they should have access to any prior psychological records of the individual.
