An Empirical and Ethical Lens on Remote Administration of Standardized Tests (89 minutes) LEARNING OBJECTIVES: 1. Demonstrate knowledge of the status, strengths, and limitations of evidence regarding remote ability testing. 2. Explain how to differentiate types of construct-irrelevant influences, including those unique to teleassessment. 3. Discuss teleassessment through an ethical lens and become familiar with the intersection between ethics and evidence for practice. ABSTRACT: Interest and use of teleassessment for ability tests (e.g., cognitive tests) have increased dramatically during the past few years, with considerable attention given to remote administration during the COVID-19 Pandemic. This session explores the available evidence for the use of digital and remote ability measures, potential issues regarding the validity of those measures, and implications for psychologists engaging in direct service provision. Specifically, the discussion will focus on types of construct-irrelevant influences, with emphasis on those unique to remote assessment, and offer strategies to mitigate them. Finally, this intermediate session will be grounded in terms of ethical principles for psychological service provision.
