The ability of comprehend test-based assessments implies careful training and the question arises of
the dynamics of the tests and measurements course which are required for masters level counseling
students. Research has focused thoroughly on education and training in psychological assessments
addressing issues such as how students ought to be trained in the area (Childs & Eyde, 1990),
however little investigation has been done on how students perceive the tests and measurements
course. While studies have shed light on the fact that often students themselves tend to question the
adequacy of their training (Dempster, 1990; Hilsenroth & Handler, 1995), there is still lack in research
regarding the disposition of students prior to training.
