Contemporary Practice in Psychological Diagnostics Batteries and Tests Used in Czech Republic and Worldwide – Narrative Comparison

Abstract

The project aims to gauge the awareness of psychometric standards and the application of psychodiagnostic tools by the professional psychological community, notably those that assess language abilities. This aspect is vital since many Czech pedagogical and psychological methods lack thorough details on data handling, review regularity, and adherence to psychometric validity and reliability standards. Enriching this research, 230 psychologists worldwide have engaged in our questionnaires, reflecting the study's international scope. Two targeted screening questionnaires, available in Czech and English, are designed for practising psychologists and pedagogy and psychology researchers. These will measure the professional and academic communities' familiarity with standardization processes in psychodiagnostic practices. The study targets psychologists utilizing psychodiagnostic tests and researchers incorporating these tools into their work. It investigates the hurdles to using standardised diagnostic methods, the decision-making and purchasing processes of such tools, the potential need for a governing body to oversee psychodiagnostic instruments, and the psychometric conformity of commonly used language performance tools in pedagogical-psychological settings. Another goal is to catalogue the frequently employed psychodiagnostic instruments that include language performance items, aiming to create an aggregated study. This project not only maps current practices but also serves as a critical resource for psychologists and researchers dedicated to enhancing the quality and effectiveness of psychodiagnostic assessments.
