Assessment Standards South Africa:

  • Would provide a minimum standards focus in South Africa for all activities in relation tests and testing.
  • Maintain a website and online platform to provide information for best practice, results of test reviews and access to information about tests and testing
  • Manage and disseminate information on standards relating to tests and testing. This includes information on qualifications in test use, tests reviews, test registration and the publishing and dissemination of advisory statements, in addition to guidelines and other literature on standards for the construction, use and availability of tests.

The activities of The Assessment Standards South Africa presented here should be considered as applying to all such procedures, whether or not they are labelled as ‘psychological tests’ or other similar assessments and whether or not they are adequately supported by accessible technical evidence
