• Our work aims to train normative data collectors across three East African countries. These trainers have received three separate training across two years totaling to almost 100 hours.To qualify as data collectors, trainees are mandated to pass R-PAS’ coding and proficiency exams. One certified, these interviewers will collect data in each region/province in their country and receive compensation from the developers.Thus far psychological assessments have been Western-centric, meaning tools for measuring psychosocial well-being, pathology, executive functioning, and IQ have been based on norms of white people. This means that how we assess mental health is rooted in a bias of whiteness as the standard. Furthermore, existing norms discount unique social mores of non-White, non-Western, developing countries and persons. Our study aims to begin addressing this social inequity by starting from the beginning – the very first psychological assessment that was developed. Our hope is that this study will reveal the importance of population-proportionate norms and create a movement to re-standardize measures of mental capacity and personality.
