About Us

The British Psychological Society's Psychological Testing Centre (PTC) provides a focus for all Society activities in relation to psychological testing. Through the PTC, the British Psychological Society (BPS) offers nationally recognised qualifications in test use, and provides independent reviews of psychological tests.

The Psychological Testing Centre was formed to support the work of the Committee on Test Standards by managing the dissemination of information on standards relating to psychological tests and testing. This includes information on qualifications in test use, the publication of Assessment & Development Matters, tests reviews, test registration and the publishing and dissemination of advisory statements, in addition to guidelines and other literature on standards for the construction, use and availability of tests. The PTC also manages the procedures for the verification of Society’s accredited Assessors for the various qualifications in test use.

The PTC website provides access to information about tests and testing. Whether you are a psychologist, a test user or a member of the public interested in knowing more about testing, the PTC website is a valuable resource.
