  1. Hi there! I enjoy your podcast. However, it would be helpful if you could actually list the requirements for evaluators of specific types of testing and wgere to fibd the requirements. It looks like most of this is for phd’s. Id like to be able to know what masters level clinicians can do. Its often hard to find this info.

      I hear you! All of the test publishers will list their required qualification levels and what you need in order to administer certain instruments. It’s true that most testing is done by doctoral-level clinicians, but Masters folks can do a lot too. Ultimately it comes down to what you have the training and expertise to do 🙂
