School Psychological Examiner Certification
School Psychological Examiner Certification Program
School Psychological Examiners are certified by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to work with public school students from kindergarten to twelfth grade. Job responsibilities include interviewing, observing, administering, and interpreting standardized test instruments in order to determine eligibility for specialized services or to provide occupational guidance and planning.
School Psychological Examiner Certification is an added certificate to an existing Masters Degree. Students pursuing this certification must possess a valid teaching or student services certificate. Certification is often added to School Counselor, Education Administration, or Special Education Certificates, but can be added to other DESE Certifications. In addition, DESE requires that most of the coursework for this certificate be completed at the graduate level. One undergraduate course that can be counted toward the certification is The Exceptional Child or Student.
