The annual award honors an individual who demonstrates a “long and distinguished history of scientific contributions” within the areas of the APA’s Division 5, which promotes high standards in research and practical application of program evaluation, measurement, statistics, assessment, and qualitative methods.

She has authored, co-authored, or edited 20 academic books on topics such as high school dropouts, women with disabilities, critical race theory, feminist psychology, and Muslim American youth. Her many previous honors include the 2013 APA award for Distinguished Contributions to Research in Public Policy.
