Test User Ability

Why do this course?

This is the basic qualification into the issues of psychological measurement and introduces you to the concepts of reliability, validity, norm groups as well as the practical issues of administering tests and applying them fairly.  It is a pre-requisite for those who also wish to achieve the BPS and EFPA qualifications known as Test User Personality.  This course is for people who wish to improve their selection and development processes by introducing psychometric tests, understand how to select, apply and interpret tests in a range of instruments, gain practical experience in the administration and feedback of test results.

What is involved?

There is pre-course work accessible online allowing sufficient familiarisation for you to be able to achieve British Psychological Society (BPS) and the European Federation of Psychological Associations (EFPA) certificates of competence with just one day of face-to-face contact.  That day is very practical and requires you to practice administering ability tests, scoring and giving feedback in small groups managed by an experienced tutor.  You get a chance to see others managing the same process in very different ways and a chance to discuss issues you have with any of the online learning modules.

Who will be your tutors on the course?

This course will be led by Roy Childs who is a Chartered Occupational Psychologist, Consultant Editor for the BPS Test Review process and a BPS Verifier for this level of course.

On successful completion you will have access to all the PfS ability tests (Verbal, Numerical, Abstract, Memory and Attention, Decision Analysis) which cover a broader range of cognitive capabilities than you will find with other publishers.  You will also achieve the following internationally recognised qualification which allows you to purchase and use tests from most reputable test publishers:

BPS and EFPA Certificates: the course is verified to enable course delegates to receive the internationally recognised certificates of competence known as Test User Personality (formerly Level B) if certain pre-requisites have been met.
