With the fourth wave of COVID-19 impacting the lives of countless children and adults, many psychologists have recognized that tele-assessment approaches are here to stay. In this advanced workshop, we discuss the ethical and practical approaches to conducting tele-assessments and the new learnings that have emerged through a pandemic of testing.
Hear four esteemed tele-assessment psychologists, Dr. Ryan Matchullis, Dr. Mitch Colp, Chris Pawluk, and John Laing discuss this emerging assessment modality within the context of their intra-provincial and cross-jurisdictional approaches.
This panel format session includes short lectures from the speakers, followed by a Q&A session. Participants in this workshop will come away with a more developed understanding of:
- The ethical considerations in performing tele-assessments.
- The validity and reliability concerns in performing tele-assessments..
- The environmental considerations in performing tele-assessments.
- The practical logistics in performing tele-assessments.
- The unique challenges in performing tele-assessments.
- The general limitations in performing tele-assessments.
