Although assessment practice during internship helps to develop skills, it is important to continue to refine these skills and add to them and to continue reading the current research literature in assessment. There are many opportunities to attend workshops that focus on particular tests or on the development of particular assessment skills. For example, there is a series of workshops available at various annual meetings of professional groups devoted to assessment, taught by assessment experts. This is an excellent way to build skills and to learn about the development of new instruments. Also, workshops, often offered for continuing education credit, are available throughout the year and are listed in the APA Monitor.
