Test Security in the Twenty-First Century
Maintaining test security is a concern for those psychologists who utilize standardized assessment procedures, especially those in the area of forensic psychology. This concern continues to grow given the increasing accessibility of these measures to the general public and nonpsychology professionals. This article addresses the reasoning behind the American Psychological Association's (APA) ethical standards related to test security and the commonly observed compromises to test security. The professional responsibilities that psychologists, the APA, the authors of assessment procedures, and test publishers and distributors share are addressed.
