Why WPS Collects Data for New and Revised Assessments

Why WPS Collects Data for New and Revised Assessments


Have you ever wondered what it is like to
be a data collector with WPS? Well, let me give you some information. When we are developing a test, we collect
a large amount of data on both typically developing individuals and clinical populations. So, let’s say, for example, we are developing a test for autism. We’re
going to collect a large amount of data on a nationally representative sample of typically
developing individuals to norm the data as well as clinical samples of autism individuals
to validate the measure. When we are either developing a new test or
revising an existing test, we need a ton of data. So that’s where you come in. We are always looking for interested practitioners
who are in the fields of psychology, school psychology, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, and other affiliated fields to participate in data collection. It’s a really cool opportunity because not
only do you get to test out and see new assessments before they are published, but you and your participants get paid to collect and submit data It’s a win – win situation.
