IRP and the professional practice of guidance counselors in Quebec
For more than 50 years, we have been helping guidance counselors in their work as professionals in the helping relationship, guidance and career development. We provide them with assessment tools to facilitate their interventions in the areas of mental health and human relations. Our tests thus support the development of socio-professional autonomy and informed decision-making on the professional, academic and personal levels.
What role can psychometrics play in guidance?
“Psychometric tools play a significant role in the orientation assessment process. More specifically, they promote a deeper understanding of the person's situation by obtaining information that is not otherwise accessible. In addition, the use of reliable and valid psychometric tools increases the objective perspective of the assessment of the person's situation.
Measuring involves the application of certain operating rules which, taking several variables into account, aim to qualify attributes of the person using indicators of these attributes (e.g. tests indicating intelligence, behaviours revealing personality).
Thus, the choice of the appropriate psychometric tool is a crucial step in the use of the tests, as is the moment of the interpretation of the results prior to or concurrent with their transmission. Throughout these actions taken in the use of psychometric tools, the context must be taken into account, whether it is the context of the assessment or the context of the person who is the subject of it.»
