Decoding the Standards Webinar Series


The 2014 Standards represents the 5th edition in the series of standards developed by the professional organizations in educational and psychological assessment (American Psychological Association, American Educational Research Association, and the National Council on Measurement in Education). This series will illustrate how the Standards can be applied in specific areas of testing practice (e.g., employment, school psychology) through the use of examples to amplify the intent of the Standards, to promote sound testing practices, and to provide a basis for evaluating the quality of those practices. The goal of the series is to encourage audiences to view the Standards as a relevant and essential resource in the development and use of tests in their respective settings. 


  • Professionals, Academics, and Graduate Students
  • Test Developers: those who create, sponsor, publish, or market tests and assessments
  • Test Users: those who review, select, administer, score, interpret, and use tests and assessments for decision-making
