Benchmarks Evaluation System

The Benchmark Evaluation System provides the means for graduate programs to evalauate their success in meeting the Competency Benchmarks for Professional Psychology, a set of core competencies for professional psychology that students should develop during their training.

The benchmarks evaluation system, just like the benchmarks document, was designed as a resource, not as a mandate, for training programs. Programs are free to modify the examples (behavioral anchors from the Appendix (DOC, 315KB)) and identify additional examples or competencies that relate to their specific program goals and outcomes and to select the specific clusters they wish to use.
