The ITC Guidelines on the Use of Test Revisions, Obsolete Tests, and Test Disposal have gone into public consultation

The ITC Guidelines on the Use of Test Revisions, Obsolete Tests, and Test Disposal have gone into public consultation. We welcome any comments or suggestions you may have to improve the guideline. Please forward your review comments directly to secretary@intestcom.org. These guidelines address issues associated with when to adopt revisions to or new versions of tests. Revisions can range from a norm update to a complete new version of the contents and the scales. These guidelines also address issues associated with the disposal of obsolete test materials. These guidelines emphasize the importance of using sound professional judgment when deciding, on a case by case basis, the appropriateness of using either a new or revised version of a test or continuing to use the older version. This judgment involves balancing considerations relating to improvements offered by the newer version against the need for continuity of assessment afforded by use of the older one.
