Psychological testing is designed to assess individuals across a variety of functional domains, such as emotions, intelligence, and memory.

Testing batteries, as they are more formally known, are determined by the psychologist during an initial interview and vary depending on the identified problem or areas of concern. Overall, the goal of psychological testing can include: diagnostic clarification, determination of symptom severity, screening for future problems, making predictions about future behaviors, and aiding in treatment recommendations. The information gained from testing is powerful and can lead to a more accurate diagnosis, treatment, or accommodations for the individual.
