How many of us have wondered about the test development process? It’s something so integral to the work that we do, yet many of us actually know very little about how a test goes from idea to reality. I’m fortunate to have three guests from PAR Inc. to help demystify the test development journey. Join us as we talk through these topics and many others:
- What are the primary steps along the test development path?
- How do test publishers decide which tests get developed?
- How does data collection happen?
- How can we, as clinicians, participate in the test development process?

About Dr. Jeremy Sharp
I’m a licensed psychologist and Clinical Director at the Colorado Center for Assessment & Counseling, a private practice that I founded in 2009 and have grown to over 20 clinicians. I earned my undergraduate degree in Experimental Psychology from the University of South Carolina before getting my Master’s and PhD in Counseling Psychology from Colorado State University. These days, I specialize in psychological and neuropsychological evaluation with kids and adolescents.
As the host of the Testing Psychologist Podcast, I provide private practice consulting for psychologists and other mental health professionals who want to start or grow psychological testing services in their practices. I live in Fort Collins, Colorado with my wife (also a therapist) and two young kids.
