The Committee on Test Standards

The Committee on Test Standards (CTS) operates under the guidance of the society’s Membership Standards Board (MSB).

The CTS has been leading initiatives to promote high technical standards in the design and development of tests and their use by psychologists and non-psychologists for many decades. These include the development of competence-based test user qualifications and of test reviews and test registration.
