These services involve administration and interpretation of standardized tests as measures to better understand the students or referrals. These also aim to help the students attain an enlightened view of themselves in terms of their intellectual level, attitudinal capacities, study attitudes as well as personality functioning. These are services that are also extended to special education schools. Other projects of the PTU personnel are the updating of norms, test construction, and the sale of SLU-developed test materials.
