Is biculturalism a three dimensional construct?

Interesting article suggesting that biculturalism (and not degree of acculturation and enculturation) may be a three dimensional construct. Click on images to enlarge.

NERONORMA Project: Spanish norms for common neuropsychological tests

Today, during my weekly literature search, I ran across a series of articles providing results from the NERONORMA project (Spanish Multicenter Normative Studies).  The project is described in a free on-line copy of an article available in the Archives of Clinical Psychology.  The abstract for the article is below
This paper describes the methods and sample characteristics of a series of Spanish normative studies (The NEURONORMA project). The primary objective of our research was to collect normative and psychometric information on a sample of people aged over 49 years. The normative information was based on a series of selected, but commonly used, neuropsychological tests covering attention, language, visuo-perceptual abilities, constructional tasks, memory, and executive functions. A sample of 356 community dwelling individuals was studied. Demographics, socio-cultural, and medical data were collected. Cognitive normality was validated via informants and a cognitive screening test. Norms were calculated for midpoint age groups. Effects of age, education, and sex were determined. The use of these norms should improve neuropsychological diagnostic accuracy in older Spanish subjects. These data may also be of considerable use for comparisons with other normative studies. Limitations of these normative data are also commented

BAT III Woodcock-Munoz Assessment Service Bulletin (ASB)

I was looking at the searches that led people to this blog and noticed a number of folks looking for information regarding the Batería III Woodcock-Muñoz.  In looking through my past posts I noticed only one post regarding the BAT III---a test review in APA Division 16's School Psychologist.

I realized that I did have access to an Assessment Service Bulletin (ASB) published by Riverside Publishing.  Below is the reference and a link to the PDf document.  I hope this helps those looking for additional information regarding the BAT III.
