Psychological Testing Centre (PTC)

Psychological Testing Centre PTC the McQuaig Psychometric SystemThe McQuaig Psychometric System has been awarded the PTC ‘Quality Mark’. This shows that the instrument has been registered as a test with the British Psychological Society and Psychological Testing Centre.

The PTC was formed to consolidate activities in Psychological Testing. It includes:

  • Educational and Clinical testing
  • Publishing and dissemination of advisory statements in addition guidelines and other literature on standards for the construction, use and availability of tests
  • The training requirements and qualifications of test users are considered

The BPS & PTC has instituted a “Certificate of Registration as a Psychological Test”. The intention of Test Registration is to provide members of the public with a means of distinguishing genuine psychometric instruments from other less rigorous and objective instruments. This also includes other forms of assessment that do not meet the minimum criteria necessary for classification as a psychometric instrument.
