Membership categories in the ITC
The ITC has three categories of members: Full, Affiliate and Individual.
Full membership of the ITC is limited to one member organization for each country. The full member is usually the national professional psychological association of that country. Alternatively it may be a national commission or other national body which has been recognized by the national psychological association in that country. Full members must be working towards the following objectives:
- to advance professional test development and to raise the quality standards of psychological tests;
- to protect the public against the personal and societal consequences of the use of inadequate psycho-diagnostic procedures and of the use of tests by unqualified persons, or in a manner objectionable on scientific or ethical grounds.
Affiliate membership is open to organizations, or groups of psychologists developing, publishing, and/or using tests and to commercial test publishers. The groups of psychologists, their employers or the publishers can be working on a regional, national, or international test basis.
Individual membership is open to anyone with an interest in the work of the ITC. Individual members will receive the ITC Newsletter and the International Journal of Testing.
