One of the points it makes is this:
"Qualifications of the individual who is interpreting the test. In addition, we also believe the best tests require someone with comprehensive psychological training or degrees for proper interpretation of the data. Weekend training programs can be problematic since testing and human behavior is a very complex subject. When making hiring or internal decisions, organizations need as much information and understanding as possible as the consequences can be very costly."
From time to time, I remain Citehr subscribers that psychometric testing, to truly be valid and reliable, needs trained professionals engaged in administration and interpretation.
Furthermore, its important to hold any tests that are copywritten in confidence.
While I can appreciate that we all what to share tools and techniques, and solid, well researched assessment tools can be "expensive", we have an ethical responsibility to NOT post such tests.
We can share our experience with them, and links to the appropriate sources and vendors for additional info.
Wide distribution of test questions and answer keys invalidates the test's ability to be used as indicators.
Please use tests and assessments instruments in a prudent, and responsible manner: its people's lives and career choices that are in your hands.
All the best
