CheckIt Assessment Solutions was created by friends and colleagues in the psychological, business, and high-tech industries. Through sharing our personal experiences with one another, we realized how many of our friends and family members struggled with attention problems, learning issues, and emotional conditions that interfered with their academic or professional progress at some point in their lives. Because of our personal experiences, as well as our experiences in our respective industries, it became clear that there are many college students and young professionals who are struggling to succeed and do not know why. As we discussed how to best help college and grad students overcome these types of struggles, it became evident that there is a tremendous lack of knowledge concerning psychoeducational assessment and psychological services in general. Little do thousands of students and parents know that there is a reliable and powerful process that can quickly identify and eliminate cognitive, academic, and emotional struggles.
In short, a psychoeducational assessment uses standardized “tests” to investigate students’ intellectual (cognitive), academic (achievement), emotional (mood), and personality (attitude) functioning, and how these domains affect performance in college. At CheckIt, a group of clinicians with over 20 years’ experience in administering and interpreting psychoeducational tests have devised a powerful assessment process focused on evaluating adult students pursuing higher degrees. At CheckIt, we use the most up-to-date psychoeducational assessment measures to quickly diagnose, formulate, and re-direct college students to the path of optimal health, wellness, and success. Not only do our reports clearly and concisely outline one’s psychoeducational profile, they are easy to read by multiple professionals and can help guide test preparation, tutoring, psychiatric treatment, therapy, and the attainment of academic accommodations. Our results are sustainable because we have specially trained administrative consultants who are committed to helping students achieve the recommendations outlined in their report. We will not rest until our clients gain licensure in their chosen professions and land their dream jobs.
Each CheckIt clinic is managed by a state licensed psychologist who has extensive training in conducting psychoeducational assessments. Our psychologists hold doctoral degrees in psychology from American Psychological Association (APA) certified programs in clinical or counseling psychology. “PhDs” in psychology are first and foremost researchers. In order to be awarded a doctoral degree a student must undergo years of post-undergraduate training, typically between 6 to 10, and complete a dissertation (a thesis based upon the candidate’s scientific research). Further, to be awarded their doctorate, they must demonstrate advanced knowledge about a field of study relevant to psychology and demonstrate proficiency with statistical methods. Most assessment tools, such as IQ and achievement tests, produce statistical data that is interpreted by a psychologist. Incorrect interpretation of this data by clinicians who do not have the requisite training can lead to mis-diagnosis and poorly formulated reports. At CheckIt, our psychologists make reliable diagnoses and write effective treatment plans that are accepted by universities, high stakes testing companies, and licensing boards. We believe we are the best in the field of psychoeducational assessment.
Finally, it’s been said that “it takes a village.” In addition to all CheckIt clinics being supervised by a licensed psychologist, we are staffed with a multitude of master’s level clinicians, doctoral students, and assessment consultants from a variety of backgrounds who assist with the psychoeducational testing process. At CheckIt, you will always be interviewed by a licensed psychologist, tested by a degreed psychometrician, and provided follow-up consulting from support staff who are skilled at helping you actualize your treatment recommendations. This is one facet of our process that differs from other assessment providers. Namely, we will actively participate in helping you find mental health providers, tutors, and test prep programs in your local area. Further, we will always be available to help you interface with academic advisers, disability offices, and standardized test companies (e.g. ETS and the LSAC) to ensure that our recommendations come to fruition. This “hands on” assessment aftercare until you have achieved your goals truly sets us apart.
If you are in college or graduate school and fear that you will not reach your goals, then please do not hesitate to contact us and see if we can meet your needs. The easiest and most efficient way of inquiring about our services is to complete our online questionnaire. This brief form will be sent to a psychologist for review and an administrative consultant will call you within one business day to discuss whether our company is the right choice to meet your needs.
