UW Psychology Grad Student Looking for Volunteers

UW Phycology Grad Student Ming is looking for volunteers (ages 14 to 17) to administer a standardized cognitive and academic assessment as a form of practice. Volunteers will get to experience first-hand the administration of psychological tools in a controlled environment as well as to have a short QnA session about the school psychology field once the session is over. This will be a valuable experience for students that are interested in pursuing psychology as a major in college. Contact Jian Ming Ng at jmng@uw.edu to sign up.
