1 page on cultural and legal considerations in psychological testing

In this week’s discussion, you will consider how cultural and legal considerations relate to psychological testing and assessment. Be sure to address the following in your Discussion Board post:

  • Choose three legislation or litigation events relevant to psychological testing and assessment (refer to Table 2-1 in your readings). Summarize the events and their significance.
  • Explain what it means for a test to be culture-specific.
  • Suppose you were developing an “assertiveness” test for adults to be used in various settings (e.g., for counseling or employment settings). Would it be better to develop a “culture-specific” assertiveness test or a “culture-free” assertiveness test (i.e., attempt to remove cultural elements from all items)? Why?
