School Psychometry

UAB’s School Psychometry program (Class A certification or M.A.Ed.) embodies a three-fold purpose. Its first purpose is to prepare candidates to serve as a school psychometrist to assist in meeting the evolving needs of learners, in grades K-12, within today’s rapidly changing society. Its second purpose is to deliver cutting-edge instruction through a standards-based, inquiry-focused approach. Based on constructivism, this approach prepares candidates to ​ administer psychological services in the schools. These services include the conduction of psychoeducational assessment on students referred for special services. Its third purpose is to ensure that a quality program is available to candidates who may be unable to attend class during traditional class hours. This program is delivered through a totally online platform.
