What is the Society’s position on the use of tests under the supervision of Chartered Psychologists?
Where a test is being used under supervision, it is the responsibility of the supervising chartered psychologist to ensure that good practice is followed and that the user has the competence necessary to use the instrument. Where restrictions or conditions are placed on the use of instruments by their publishers, it is the Chartered Psychologist's responsibility to inform him or herself of those restrictions or conditions and to inform the trainee. The Chartered Psychologist is responsible for ensuring that all those using the materials under his or her supervision abide by the restrictions and conditions."
Approved by the Professional Practice Board - 2007
Most tests are sold directly by specialist test publishers and distributors. The majority of tests are restricted to people with appropriate training and qualifications. Many test publishers choose to have a paid listing on the Directory of Test Publishers , where you can find further information and contact details.
The Society publishes reviews of tests submitted by test publishers on this website. If you hold a current entry on the Register of Qualifications in Test Use (RQTU) you can download unlimited test reviews as part of your benefits package. To access reviews please visit Search for a Test Review.
