Psychological Assessment Experience

Psychological Assessment Experience

Summarize your practicum assessment experience in providing psycho diagnostic and neuropsychological assessments. You must enter the estimated total number of face-to-face client contact hours administering instruments and providing feedback to clients/patients. Do not include the activities of scoring and report writing, which should instead be included in the Support Activities section.

Do not include any practice administrations. Do not include testing experience accrued while employed. You can list this in your Curriculum Vitae instead. If you only administered a subtest(s), do not endorse the full test in this section. Rather, specify the specific subtest in the Other Measures section.

Adult Assessment Instruments

Indicate all psychological assessment instruments you administered to actual patients/clients (first two columns) or research participants in a practicum or clinical research setting sanctioned by your doctoral program as a relevant training experience (third column) through November 1. If the person you assessed was not a client, patient, or clinical research participant, do not include this experience in this summary. Do not include any practice administrations. Select Other Measures to include additional instruments for any tests not listed. You can include as many instruments as you would like.

For each instrument that you used, specify the following information:

  • Number Clinically Administered/Scored: the number of times that you both administered and scored the instrument in a clinical situation (i.e., with an actual client/patient).
  • Number of Clinical Reports Written with this Measure: the number of these instruments for which you also wrote a clinical interpretive report integrating data from each measure.
  • Number Administered as Part of a Research Project: the number of instruments that you administered as part of a research project.

Please note: For each administration, only endorse it as either a clinical or research administration as the categories are meant to be mutually exclusive.   

Child & Adolescent Assessment Instruments

Indicate all psychological assessment instruments you administered to actual patients/clients (first two columns) or research participants in a practicum or clinical research setting sanctioned by your doctoral program as a relevant training experience (third columns) through November 1. If the person you assessed was not a client, patient, or clinical research participant, do not include this experience in this summary. Do not include any practice administrations. Select Other Measures to include additional instruments for any tests not listed. You can include as many instruments as you would like.

For each instrument that you used, specify the following information:

  • Number Clinically Administered/Scored: the number of times that you both administered and scored the instrument in a clinical situation (i.e., with an actual client/patient).
  • Number of Clinical Reports Written with this Measure: the number of these instruments for which you also wrote a clinical interpretive report integrating data from each measure.
  • Number Administered as Part of a Research Project: the number of instruments that you administered as part of a research project.

Integrated Reports

Enter the number of integrated psychological testing reports you have written for adults and for children and adolescents in a practicum or clinical research setting that has been sanctioned by your doctoral training program as a relevant training experience. This section is used by internship programs who are interested in knowing the amount of psychological testing and report writing that has been completed primarily by an applicant. Do not include reports written from an interview that is only history-taking, a clinical interview, and/or only the completion of behavioral rating forms where no additional psychological tests are administered.

An integrated psychological testing report is defined as a report that includes a review of history, results of an interview, and at least two psychological tests from one or more of the following categories: personality measures, intellectual tests, cognitive tests, and neuropsychological tests. Please keep this definition in mind as it answers the question of what should be included in a report in order for it to satisfy the requirement of an integrated report.

All clinical material submitted to internship programs must have identifying information redacted according to HIPAA guidelines.
