This paper investigates the efficacy and utility of recent changes made to the APA code of ethics. Specifically, the paper compares the 1992 and 2002 APA code of ethics to assess the extent to which the code protects individuals taking psychological tests from having their scores exposed to the media and other organizations that might abuse them.


From the Paper:

"There are many different types of psychological tests used to assess an individual's personality type and mental health status. Unfortunately the potential for abuse of psychological tests is high. Langley (2004) points out that tests are often administered by individuals that are not trained psychological professionals, and such individuals typically won't take into consideration factors that can affect individual performance, thus make judgment based on data that may not be 100 percent valid."
