Testing Lab

Welcome to the Psychology Department Testing Lab.  The primary purpose of the Testing Lab is to serve Psychology Department faculty in the clinical training of graduate psychology students regarding psychological assessment and intervention service delivery to individuals across the lifespan.  Graduate students across our five graduate psychology programs utilize the testing lab for coursework, research, practicum, and internship training. 

The Testing Lab houses psychological assessment kits, protocols, and software for administration and scoring of cognitive, behavioral, personality, neuropsychological, and educational measures.  The Testing Lab also houses intervention kits, materials, and software for training students to provide neurocognitive, neurobehavioral, social, emotional, and educational intervention services.  Our inventory reflects our department’s commitment to advanced clinical training, linking assessment to intervention, and promoting evidenced-based practice.

When Is The Psychological Assessment Lab (PAL) Open?

The hours are limited and vary each semester. Hours are posted on the Psychological Assessment Lab office (CHBS 5203).  The PAL will be closed whenever RU is closed due to scheduled breaks, weather, or emergencies.

You are eligible to check out materials/kits and purchase protocols if you are a faculty member or student in the RU psychology department.  You may also be eligible if you are a field-based practicum or internship supervisor or research collaborator working with one of our RU Psychology Department faculty.
