Cultural Linguistic Webinar Series

Cultural and Linguistic Considerations When Developing, Adapting, and Validating Measures

APA CE & NASP CPD CREDIT AVAILABLE

Professional standards and guidelines encourage the consideration and inclusion of individuals from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds in all aspects of testing.  However, meeting this goal presents many unique challenges. When these recommendations are unaddressed or do not incorporate methodologies promulgated in the literature, erroneous interpretation and uses can occur. To encourage the practice of standards-aligned methodologies and processes, this series will highlight the expertise of an interdisciplinary group of scholar-practitioners engaged in this work.  These presenters will share empirically based recommendations; best practice examples; and case studies that will assist in the development, adaptation, and validation of measures used with individuals from culturally and linguistically diverse groups.
