Session Abstract (150 words): 


This workshop will address culturally relevant and evaluative research from a quantitative perspective. The workshop seeks to engage the workshop participants in the process of creating a culturally relevant topic, and exploring quantitative ways to address this topic. The process will involve creating culturally relevant and quantitatively sound methods to create constructs, surveys, data dictionaries, and to administer enter, and interpret data. The outcome(s) will help to create and produce data that are not only rigorous and robust, but also data that can address topics of social justice, culturally relevant evaluation, and theories of change. The workshop will use some examples of projects that currently exist, and projects that are in progress. Workshop participants will be encouraged and guided to become informed consumers of quantitative research.
