A school social worker meets with a parent and child. The child has been refusing to come to school at least one day per week for the past two months. The social worker wants to gather some subjective data about the client's school refusal. Which of the following is an example of subjective data?
A. The client's grades.
B. The child's attendance at school.
C. The client's daily ratings of anxiety.
D. The client's IQ score.
What's your answer?
This is one of those vignettes that requires a simple item of knowledge. Do you or don't you know what subjective data means? And if you don't know, can you figure it out given a common sense understanding of the term subjective? That answer to that is yes.
Subjective data is client reported, based upon their internal experience. Grades? Objective. Attendance records? Also objective. IQ score? Objective. The only one of the offered answers that presents client-reported experience is C, a daily anxiety rating.
And, like that, you have your answer.
Do that 170 times with a reasonable percentage of correct answers and you're licensed! Then you can brag on IG, maybe get a raise, a better job--the whole package.
