Job Description for Psychometrist
A psychometrist uses their training and/or experience in psychology to specialize in tests and measurements. They may administer and score tests that evaluate the cognitive, behavioral, academic, neuropsychological, or emotional status of a patient. They accurately record responses and take note of any behaviors that could affect test results. Aside from testing, a psychometrist may also be responsible for building rapport with a patient and motivating them to participate in the tests, encouraging optimal results. It is not uncommon for a psychometrist to also perform clerical duties such as typing, billing and coding, and testing and procuring office supplies.Read More...
Psychometrists usually work indoors during regular business hours under the direct supervision of a clinical psychologist or neuropsychologist. The psychometrist's scores and measures may influence psychologists' decisions with a patient or support a research project. Psychometrists may be employed by clinical psychologists, private health groups, hospitals, or government organizations such as departments of correction or rehabilitation. Clients could include mental health patients, rehabilitation patients, test subjects belonging to a sample group, and others. Some employers may choose to categorize psychometrists; for example, there could be junior psychometrists who report to a lead psychometrist, responsible for training and overseeing them. There is little physical exertion for psychometrists; rather, there is usually prolonged sitting. Some small movements may be made during testing, such as bending and stretching.
The minimum educational requirement for a psychometrist is a bachelor's degree in psychology, though some employers require more education and/or experience. (Copyright 2017 PayScale.com)
