Frequently Asked Questions
What type of tests will you be teaching during this workshop?
We will be teaching scientifically valid and frequently used tests as part of the psychoeducational assessment. Tests that measure memory, I.Q, achievement, learning styles, anxiety and depression. You’ll practice how to administer and score these cognitive tests.
I am a psychotherapist. Can I do psychoeducational assessment?
By learning specific tests that are used in psychoeducational evaluation, the process of testing and knowing how to write psycho-educational reports you can add psychoeducational assessment to your private practice. Depending on the type of tests you are using (Level B or C), you may require a psychologist’s supervision.
What are the Level B and Level C tests?
Level B tests usually require an undergraduate (BA) or graduate (Master’s) degree in psychology, education, social work, occupational therapy and a formal training in the ethical administration, scoring, and interpretation of clinical assessments or membership in a professional association such as Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrics and Psychotherapists (OACCPP), Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA).
Level C tests require the highest qualification standards. Individuals must have a doctorate degree in psychology, education, or closely related field with formal training in the ethical administration, scoring and interpretation of psychological tests.
Do I need a psychologist’s supervision to administer Level B tests?
If you meet the educational and training requirements of Level B tests then you are able to administer the tests without the psychologist’s supervision.
Can I still administer Level C tests even if I am not a psychologist?
Yes, you can administer and score Level C tests; however, you will require psychologist’s supervision.
Why do I need a Psychologist’s supervision for Level C tests?
Level C tests require a psychologist’s supervision since these tests are used to formally diagnose.
I would like to know more about registering for this workshop. What it includes and what are the benefits?
The workshop includes all testing materials, hand-on practice of administering and scoring psychoeducational tests, how to write behavioural observations and psychoeducational reports.
You’ll also receive continuing education credits and certificate of completion.
By the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to conduct psychoeducational assessments for your clients or employer.
I have a master’s in counselling psychology and work in a private high school as the school counsellor. If I would do this training, would I be qualified to administer psycho-ed evaluations? It is my understanding that only psychologists could do such a thing.
It really depends on the types of tests you want to administer. The tests are classified into Level B and Level C tests. Level C tests require doctorate degree – you can still administer them but you would need a psychologist to supervise your testing in order to provide a diagnosis.
Level B tests you can do without psychologist supervision. In this workshop, we will be teaching both Levels B and C tests that can be used for psychoeducational evaluations.
I have a BA in Psychology and Master of Education. I am interested in being able to administer psycho-educational assessments in a school setting. Would I be able to do this after I do this workshop?
Yes, after completing this workshop you’ll be able to administer psychoeducational tests. The type of assessment you can do will depend on your level of education.
