Below are the instruction for my first assignment. Keep in mind my state is Texas and seeking to be a mental health counselor. This is a discussion so it doesnt have to be long just explain.

BE SPECIFIC about what your specific role can be with assessments in your intended setting. Some you might administer but not interpret, for example. Include your expected license and state in your response. You may need to contact your state licensing board to find where this information is listed or have personal communication with a board representative. Be sure to properly credit all sources of information in your post. Remember other requirements for discussions as stated previously.
