How can a qualification in test use help you?

Psychological tests are used in all walks of life to assess ability, personality and behaviour. A test can be used as part of the selection process for job interview or to assess children in schools. Tests may be used to assess people with mental health issues or offenders in prisons, and are also used in the National Health Service.

To ensure that professionals using tests are appropriately qualified, the BPS has developed qualification standards defining the knowledge and skills that should be held by anybody using a psychological test.
