Our Mission

Div. 5 draws together specialists in the areas of quantitative and qualitative methods. Our membership includes specialists in the fields of educational psychology, industrial-organizational psychology, individual assessment, measurement, program evaluation, psychometrics, qualitative inquiry, research interviewing, research methods and statistics. 

The disciplinary affiliation of division membership reaches well beyond psychology, includes both members and nonmembers of the American Psychological Association, and welcomes graduate students.

Section Representative Election

Div. 5 will be electing a section representative for the Society for Qualitative Inquiry in Psychology (SQIP) in 2018. Ballots will be sent out about April 15 and voting will close about June 1.


The Div. 5 website has been recently updated to aid students and professionals interested in psychological methods.
