Educational Psychology Assessment in Scotland was first launched as a position paper in 2005 by the Association of Scottish Principal Educational Psychologists (ASPEP), the British Psychological Society Scottish Division of Educational Psychology (BPS, SDEP) and the educational psychology training programmes in Scotland. This represented the national view held by the profession at that time regarding practice in educational psychology assessment. Since 2005, there have been a number of important developments in the Scottish educational context. These include significant legislative and policy advances and also developments in professional knowledge through the impact of research and theory development.
