Psychometrists are health care professionals who work with patients to administer and score a wide range of neurophysiological and psychological tests. This helps patients with neurological diseases, traumatic brain injuries, learning disabilities, or psychological health issues to better understand their conditions and to measure their progress if they are undergoing rehabilitation. These tests can also be used for research purposes for scientists who study these kinds of conditions. Psychometrists work under the general supervision of licensed neuropsychologists and psychologists. They work in both hospital and private practice settings and rarely have to take work home with them. Psychometrists may also work for local, state, or federal government agencies, schools, or non-profit organizations.
