Psychometrists conduct tests with patients to prepare the grounds for medical diagnosis related to neurological or psychological problems. They have people fill out questionnaires or complete test tasks in order to find out whether they have brain injuries, neurological problems, diseases, psychological problems, learning disabilities, or other issues.
A psychometrist functions as a skilled administrator to administer surveys for medical research. It is their job to store and arrange test materials, keep track of the test data of patients, and take care of inventory of any equipment necessary to carry out the tests.
They work under the supervision of licensed psychologists or neurologists, following their clinical and technological guidance. The results of tests are used as a basis for treatment plans and further referred to practicing physicians or medical researchers.
