Delivered and designed by Éirim:

The National Assessment Agency, this course in educational testing is fast becoming the gold and industry standard for anyone working directly or indirectly with educational tests (e.g. intellectual, attainment, behavioural). Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), upon successful completion participants will be awarded a professional Certificate of Competence in Educational testing and be eligible for placement on Éirim and the BPS’s Register of Individuals competent in educational test use.
Throughout the 3 days participants will engage in lecture, individual and group work, practical activities, role play and complete assessed assignments. In order to gain certification, a number of assessed activities along with submission of a short portfolio of work is required following the 3 days. Full post course tuition and support is given to all participants.

  • Administering tests (intelligence and attainment)

  • How to choose appropriate tests (there are many on the market!)
