Conference programs and presentations will focus on issues surrounding culturally appropriate assessment in educational and mental health settings as well as culturally responsive strategies in program evaluation, particularly as they pertain to culturally and linguistically diverse populations. The programs will reflect the following themes: (1) Culture in educational and psychological assessment, program evaluation, and policy-making; (2) Culture and language differences in educational and psychological research; and (3) Multicultural competence in education and mental health.

The conference should be of interest to educators, practitioners, and students in the fields of counseling and counseling psychology, school psychology, K-12 and higher education, educational measurement, program evaluation, educational policy, institutional research, and human resources.
