Job Description for Psychometrist

A psychometrist uses their training and/or experience in psychology to specialize in tests and measurements.

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.
