Quantitative Sessions of Potential Interest
at the APA Convention in San Francisco

Deniz S. Ones
University of Minnesota

This year the American Psychological Associations annual conference will take place between August 24 and 28 in San Francisco. During 20002001, I served as the program chair for Division 5 (Evaluation, Measurement, Statistics) of APA. (Wayne Camara of the College Board was division president.) Many SIOP members helped review programs, and I would like to thank them for their efforts. There are several presentations that have been scheduled as part of the Division 5 program that could be of interest to SIOP (Division 14) members. (Of course, these are in addition to the many excellent sessions that the Division 14 [SIOP] program offers).

Below I have listed some relevant highlights for Division 14. If you are planning to attend the APA conference, we hope that you will have the opportunity to check some of these sessions out.
