Testing and Assessment

APA responds to a large number of testing questions each day, ranging from "What guidelines or standards govern testing and assessment?" to "What is APA's stand or viewpoint on a particular testing issue?"

To obtain information about purchasing a copy of the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing (2014), visit the Standards webpage.

To learn about the kinds of activities in which APA is involved in order to facilitate appropriate test use, visit the Testing Governance in APA webpage.

APA's Testing Office does not maintain, sell or endorse any tests. However, we do try to assist the public by directing people to the available resources to help them find what they need. In addition to the material provided on this site, additional testing-related resources are available through the page of links to other testing-related sites.
