Selection by Design - Blog
In this post, we thought it would be useful to give you, in one place, the contact details of the important organizations that you may wish to contact at some point regarding psychometrics (e.g., standards, quality assurance). In a separate Blog, we give some descriptive details of these organizations so that you can fully understand the remit of each organization.
Considering that Selection by Design works closely with the British Psychological Society (BPS) regarding the Quality Assurance of our training programmes, it is useful to start by giving you the contact details of the BPS. Whether you are a psychologist or not, you may wish to browse the BPS website - it is really good:The British Psychological Society St Andrews House 48 Princess Road East Leicester LE1 7DR Tel: + 44 (1) 116 254 9568 Fax: + 44 (1) 116 227 1314 Email: email@example.com Web: www.bps.org.uk
As the administration and management of standards and practice in this area is quite a rigorous process, the BPS have a dedicated 'Psychological Testing Centre: PTC'. If you have specific queries about the BPS and their policies on psychometrics testing, contact the PTC:Psychological Testing Centre The British Psychological Society St Andrews House 48 Princess Road East Leicester LE1 7DR Web: www.psychtesting.org.uk
Considering that Selection by Design is based in Ireland, it is also important to give you the contact details of The Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI). PSI, like the BPS, has policies on psychometrics and testing (e.g., for Guidance Counsellors). PSI has a 'Standing Committee on Psychometric Evaluation', of which Conor is a member (further details of the Role and Functions of SCoPE are in a separate Blog). PSI can be contacted as follows:The Psychological Society of Ireland Cumann Síceolaithe Éireann Floor 2, Grantham House Grantham Street Dublin 2 Tel: + 353 (1) 4749160 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
