New Assessment Methods – a conference in Cracow
The 2nd Cracow Assessment Conference entitled “New Assessment Methods for Children and Adults” was organized jointly by the Cracow branch of the Polish Psychological Society and the Department of Applied Psychology of Jagiellonian University. The conference was held on 20 June 2016 at the Department of Managment and Social Communication of Jagiellonian University.
It was the second time when we have an opportunity to present to the audience the tools we are currently working on and our recent publications. At the beginning Iwona Bac and Joanna Stańczak talked about new or re-normalized versions of the memory and attention assessement tests such as BVRT, DCS-II, TUS, d2-R.
Diana Fecenec presented Intelligence and Development Scales for Persons aged 5-20, the normalization of which started this spring. Aleksandra Jaworowska discussed the already available CUIDA questionnaire, the tool for assessing future adoptive parents and guardians, and, together with Anna Matczak, gave an introductory presentation of Parental Competence Test which will soon go through normalization process. At the end Joanna Stańczak talked about Depression Assessment Questionnaire KPD.
We would like to thank all those who participated in the conference.
