(1) conform to the professional standards for testing, as adopted by the American Psychological Association in the Standards for Educational and Psychological Tests, 1985, which is hereby adopted by reference;
(2) specifically consider each of the following issues in testing each client:
(A) whether a particular test is appropriate for a particular client;
(B) whether the computerized version of a test is appropriate for use by a particular client;
(C) the evaluation, validity and reliability of the decision rules underlying interpretive statements and their supporting research;
(D) whether the integration of findings is correct; and
(E) whether the conclusions and recommendations are appropriate.
(3) not use the results of a computerized test in decision-making about clients or make such results part of official client records unless such results are signed by the licensed psychologist utilizing the test;
(4) be involved in a direct, supervisory, or consultative relationship to the client or to those persons using test findings for decision-making regarding the client;
(5) assume the same degree of responsibility for the validity and reliability of interpretive statements and soundness of inferences, judgments, and recommendations based on computer-generated test results as would be assured if the psychologist had personally examined the client; and
(6) make an explicit statement on the report as to whether the psychologist has seen or examined the client in person. (Authorized by and implementing K.S.A. 74-7507, as amended by L. 1986, Ch. 299, Sec. 42; effective, T-85-35, Dec. 19, 1984; effective May 1, 1985; amended May 1, 1987.)
