Psychometric Test Administration Course Objectives
This foundation Level course equips participants to administer psychometric tests competently. It helps to ensure reliability and standardization in the process and provides participants with some basic advice on ethics and best practice.
- Provide the underpinning knowledge required to become a competent Test Administrator
- Develop the practical skills necessary to become a competent Test Administrator
- Explain the theory, principles and ethical considerations of psychometric testing
- Covey basic psychometric principles such as reliability and validity
- Train participants to administer, score and norm psychometric aptitude, ability and personality tests.
This Level does not provide participants with skills to interpret or feedback psychometric test results; it is purely aimed at facilitating competence in administering psychometric tests.
For those who need to be able to interpret psychometric test results, feed them back to candidates and decision-makers and write-up psychometric test reports, please consider our combined BPS Level 1 & 2 RQTU course.
The Psychometric Test Administration Course is for anybody involved in human resource assessment who needs to administer psychometric tests. The nature of psychometric tests is such that their reliability and validity can be critically impacted by incorrect administration. It is for this reason that anybody administering psychometric tests or overseeing the administration of internet-based tests should be appropriately qualified.

He is a joint resident of Singapore and Hong Kong. He is a full member of the Australian Psychological Society, an Associate Fellow with the British Psychological Society and the Hong Kong Psychological Society, and holds Chartered Status with full membership of both the BPS Division of Occupational Psychology and Division of Neuropsychology.

Training was informative, sleek and world class- just the right amount of knowledge that one needs to be able to digest. Thumbs up to PsyAsia
The Online Training for Test Administration was an ideal solution for me. The program was delivered by a very experienced facilitator, the content was substantial and doing it online allowed us to attend the course in an environment that we are already comfortable in. I would highly recommend this course to management who are looking for a unique yet effective training methodology.

Senior Learning and Development Manager Chubb
The course was very informative.
Being able to attend training without having to leave my seat is great! The content was good.
We also asked our Online attendees what they liked best about the course – this is what they said:
- The presentation was very sleek and informative, the notes and points presented were just nice and of course Dr Graham was the apt person to conduct this training – simply world class.
- The facilitator was very knowledgeable.
Course outline was very well structured, and easy to follow albeit being an online training.
- Not having to leave my desk to attend the training – the convenience and time-saving makes it a good option. Training was interactive and would be even more so if everyone was prep-ed with headsets.
- My first time to attend an online course and I like all the presentation from Day 1 to Day 3.
- It was very precise. The Facilitator was very clear and he allowed interaction and not just try speed off.
- Course Delivery Method. Interaction of trainer with the students was very professional.
- Clear presentation, presenter is very supportive and he speaks with empathy.
