  1. The historical use of the terms objective and projective to classify a personality test, and the problems with such classification.

  3. Utilizing the articles from APA (2003) and Krishnamurthy et. Al. (2004), discuss at least three important areas of competency for the clinician involved in assessments; a minimum of one of these three should address a multicultural competency.
