Scholarcy highlights

  • We are experiencing temporary authentication disruption to SAML Federation access, which we are working to resolve with a system update on Monday 25th October at 11.30 GMT
  • I discuss strengths and weaknesses of assessment approaches utilizing explicit assessment methods, such as self-report measures and clinical interviews; information obtained from knowledgeable observers; and performance-based, implicit assessment methods such as the Rorschach Comprehensive System
