Who May Purchase Tests
User Qualifications – We uphold the guidelines established by the American Psychological Association and the Canadian Psychological Association on sales of restricted materials. To establish your account and qualification level and to purchase B- and C-level materials, complete and sign the Qualification Statement and submit it with your order. Students ordering tests for research must prepay and have their supervising faculty member sign the qualification form.
Test User Qualifications and Sound Assessment Practice
Sound test use is addressed by many professional associations (e.g.: ASTD, SHRM, IACMP, APA, CPA, ACA, NCDA) and in the Standards for Educational Psychological Testing, 1999.
CLS supports the guidelines and standards on the development and use of testing materials developed jointly by the American Psychological Association and the National Council on Measurement in Education. Thus, certain tests are available only to users who have appropriate training and credentials and who adhere to the principles of proper test use in psychological and educational testing, including the knowledge of tests, administration and interpretation and their limitations.
Appropriate, ethical use of testing tools requires general knowledge of tests and their applications and limitations. It is strongly recommended that all test users using a test for the first time be thoroughly familiar with the manual and have the opportunity to use the test they’ve chosen in a supervised field setting. It is also essential that all purchasers of testing materials understand that "the ultimate responsibility for appropriate test use lies with the test user" (Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing, APA, 1985, p.41).
