Psychometric Assessment Project (project description) - project description
A series of tests and assessment tools are in use within Norwegian mental health care. We know little about the psychometric properties of these tests when applied in a Norwegian context. The purpose of the Psychometric Assessment Project is to create, publish and update an overview of tests used in Norwegian mental health care, and assess the documentation of the tests’ psychometric properties. For all tests in the overview, we will perform systematic literature searches, select publications according to predetermined criteria and evaluate the tests’ documented adaptation to Norwegian conditions, reliability, validity and norm basis. An important long term aim of the project is that the overview can contribute to Norwegian health workers’ informed choices of tests and assessment tools.
