Picking up/Dropping off Psychological Tests/Kits/Manuals

Psychological assessments can be reserved for a maximum of 4 nights, and they must be returned at the arranged drop-off time on the due date. You must send your reservation request a minimum of one day before you pick it up to provide library staff with ample time, especially during peak periods, to prepare and allocate test materials. **Same-day requests may not be accommodated.**

When making a reservation, please email and make sure you include the following information.

  • Your full name
  • Name of the kit/test you would like to reserve (please follow the terminology in the Assessment Kits Inventory List below)
  • Name and quantity of any forms needed (maximum 3 forms per kit)
  • Date and time for which you would like to pick up the kit/test
  • Date and time for which you would like to drop off the kit/test

You will receive an email confirmation from when your assessments have been reserved. You will also receive a calendar appointment with the details of your reservation. Accept this into your calendar.

For more information on the assessment library's policies and procedures, please consult the attached document.


When picking up assessment kits, please see any Student Library Worker or Lauren Lacey, Vancouver Librarian. You are required and expected to fully check every kit that you sign out, including every page of manuals. You will be held responsible for any damage done to the kit/test/manual while these are in your care.

If a kit is not picked up within an hour of your reservation, and we have not heard from you, your reservation will be cancelled and the assessments will be made available for reservations to other students.


You must return the kits/tests/manuals at your specified drop-off time/day. If you are unable to make your drop-off time, please alert the library staff or librarian as soon as possible as others may be waiting for the assessment materials. 

Assessment kits/tests/manuals MUST be checked back in by a Library Student Worker or the Librarian. We check to make sure all kit contents are complete, and we sign off on them—this final process ends your reservation/responsibility for that kit.

Please do NOT leave tests at the Front Desk or anywhere in the library.

You are responsible for ensuring all test items included in the kits are returned and in good condition.

Vancouver Assessment Library Policies

Psychological Assessment kits and manuals have been purchased by Adler University to assist PsyD. students in becoming trained and proficient in the provision of psychological testing.

First Year PsyD Students

Students in their first year of the Doctor of Psychology program will be able to sign out kits studied in the PsyD 627 Assessment class in order to practice and complete assignments. Scoring software will not be available to students in their first year without Instructor permission. 

Second Year and above PsyD Students

Students who are in their second, third or fourth year of the program and approved for practicum have access to the full assessment library (including scoring software). For more information on what software is available, please see the Accessing Assessment Software document found by the Scoring computer. Please direct your questions about scoring software information to Dr. Jordan Maile, PsyD. Faculty ( 

As the psychological assessment tests are shared among students in all years, please be aware that priority will be given to assessment courses requiring psychological assessments for the time periods the particular instrument is being taught.  Students on practicum will need to plan their assessments with that in mind.

For more information on the assessment library's policies and procedures, please consult the attached document.

Lost or Damaged Assessment Materials

If you lose an assessment kit or manual, you will be charged the full replacement cost plus a $10 processing fee.

If any assessment materials are damaged to the extent that they are deemed ‘no longer useable’ by the library, the student will be charged 20% of the original cost of the material.


Assessment Kits and Manuals Inventory

When making a reservation for a kit/manual, please ensure that you use the terminology found in this inventory.

Student Responsibility Forms

All Doctor of Psychology students are required to sign a responsibility form before any kits/tests/manuals can be reserved in your name. If you haven't already signed one, please sign one and return to the Library. A copy is attached below.

Booking Rooms


A room must be booked to practice administrating the test or to score. All test practice and administration must occur in confidential settings in order to protect the integrity of test (i.e., non-psychologists should not be seeing or having any exposure to these tests).

If you need a video camera, you will need to supply your own SD card.

No test practice/administration/manual scoring is allowed in the Learning Commons.
