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?
