Job Description for Psychometrician

Psychometricians are responsible for creating, administering, and reviewing tests that measure a person's psychological attributes. Psychometrics refers to a systematized process of measuring a person's intellectual capability and thought processes. Psychometricians are the scientists behind this process. Psychometric tests may be used for personal use, or they could be administered at a broader level. These tests could be used for school curricula, career aptitude assessment, and clinical studies. The specific work performed by a psychometrician can vary, as personality tests can be administered in a variety of ways. Some are in the form of multiple choice questions, while others may ask for essays and situational items. These tests aim to personally help people understand their personality and intellectual capacity and compare themselves to other groups. They may also be used to modify school curriculum, offer career-related advice, or evaluate a person's mental health. Additionally, they could help give scientists a greater understanding of how the human mind works and further the advancement of psychological science.
