But My Psychometrician Told Me it was Fine! Understanding Psychometric Standards and Practice
Track: Test Development and Administration
Psychometrics play a critical role in test design, development, and evaluation. Best practices in these areas are codified in the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing, which are developed by the American Educational Research Association, the American Psychological Association, and the National Council on Measurement in Education. In this session, we share information about the larger field of psychometrics, the roles and responsibilities of the psychometrician in testing, and help programs understand how they can ensure the expertise of their psychometrician is in alignment with their program needs, and with professional standards in the testing profession.
