The American Psychological Association’s (APA) Code of Ethics, section 9.11, (2003) and Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA; section 1172[e]) clearly states that healthcare professionals or educators are responsible for test security. Test materials and all record forms must be kept in a secure location, and must not be distributed to unqualified individuals or the general public. Measures or scales are not allowed to be filmed, or copied for public display.
Materials are not allowed to be filmed, video-taped, or otherwise copied for display. In addition to the violation of the copyright laws, unauthorized release of materials compromise test security. All materials in the test protocol are copyrighted by the authors and their agent, the Stoelting Company. Proposals for reproduction of materials need to be submitted in writing to Stoelting Company. Unauthorized copying of test materials is prohibited.
