Assessment Qualification Levels
Review the qualification levels for the use of psychological assessment presented in Naugle’s “Counseling and Testing” in this unit’s study activity. Compare these qualifications to the professional activities covered in the license or certification you intend to seek. Keeping in mind that these rules vary from state to state, describe the types of assessments that you may be qualified to administer with appropriate training and supervision, after you obtain your licensure or certification in your state. As best you understand, what does appropriate training and supervision entail for Level A, B, and C tests?

Refer to the code of ethics for your profession (ACA Clinical Counselor) (ACA Code of Ethics, AAMFT Code of Ethics, or ASCA Code of Ethics) in your response.
