Thinking Critically About the Selection of Spanish Assessment Tools
August 16, 2013, 3:00-5:00 PM EST
Featuring: Dr. Alexander Quiros, PhD from Pearson Assessments
Due to the quality of psychological assessment tools in Spanish, proper bilingual assessments are
as much an art as they are a science. And like any scientist or artist can tell you, the quality of one’s tools and the skills needed to wield those tools are vitally important. This two-hour webinar will focus on learning how to determine the quality of tools available in Spanish, learning how to think about assessments beyond the final scores, and reviewing the strengths and weaknesses of existing measure. At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to think critically about the appropriate selection of measures that will be used for research or for psychological evaluations.
