General registration requires that Provisional Psychologists demonstrate competence in the administration and interpretation of a range of psychological assessment tools and techniques. Each pathway will have its own way of demonstrating this competency. We recommend reviewing the guidelines for your chosen pathway to ensure you have access to the relevant psychometric assessment tools to be able to demonstrate competence. We discuss these requirements in the Professional Development series 'Professional Development for Provisional Psychologists.'
Ask your employer what psychometric assessment tools you have available in your work role.
