About test reviews & registration

Test publishers and test distributors in the UK submit their tests for registration and review on a voluntary basis.

Test reviews are a full review of a test, reviewed independently by two Reviewers and two Editors against the European Federation of Psychologists Association Review Model for the Description and Evaluation of Psychological Tests (The EFPA Review Model). This model has been produced to support and encourage the process of harmonising the quality standards and the reviewing of tests across Europe.

Where a test meets a certain standard in terms of the key EFPA criteria, including the quality of the test’s technical and user documentation, the quality of the test materials, the test’s validity, reliability, and the provision of norms or other information necessary for meaningful interpretation of scores, it is awarded BPS Registered Test status.

For more information about the test reviews and test registration process, please see the documents below.
