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.
