This thorough analysis of multicultural assessment covers significant issues, including the major instruments and procedures, cognitive and educational assessment, and cross-cultural sensitivity and ethics.

Including updated articles from the original contributors as well as entirely new contributions, the revised version offers compelling ideas for conducting assessments with minority populations.
