About Us

Welcome to Psychological Assessments Australia (PAA)

Our mission is to provide premier assessment products to psychologists, health practitioners and HR specialists in Australia and New Zealand through superior customer service and professional product support.

Established in 1994 by Walter Howe, a Sydney-based psychologist, PAA is one of the top distributors of psychological assessment products in Australia and New Zealand.

Distribution agreements are currently in place with Psychological Assessment Resources (PAR), and Western Psychological Services (WPS) in the U.S.; Multi-Health Systems in Canada; GL Education (UK) and Riverside Publishing, U.S for the Australian language adaptation of the Woodcock Johnson Test Batteries.

Warehousing is in Sydney allowing next day delivery of in-stock items to capital cities around Australia, 2-3 days to country regions and approximately 7 days to our New Zealand customers.  Delivery times outlined are subject to stock availability.   Customers should first check with PAA regarding stock availability if an item is required urgently.

Computerised testing/reporting is available for many of the products we sell. PC based programs (mostly pay-per-use) allow for either hand or computerised testing of clients and for a variety of reports to be generated from client data.

Scoring Bureau Services are also available for customers who do not want to run their own PC based testing but who want the convenience of computer scoring and reporting. Completed answer sheets are mailed or faxed to PAA in Sydney with computer generated reports returned to clients by fax and/or mail.  Our 'standard' service provides a turnaround within 24 hours of receipt.  We also offer a 'rush' service with a 2-hour turnaround for practitioners requiring reports in a hurry.

Online Testing & Reporting is available for certain assessment tools.  Several Emotional Intelligence assessments are currently available online, as well as a range of the clinical tools with many others currently in development.  See our Online Testing page.

Professional phone support is provided by our in-house registered psychologist to practitioners who either require assistance selecting assessments or perhaps interpreting reports generated by PAA.  Fee may apply.

Local Test Development is encouraged at PAA. We are constantly searching for new products that will be useful to our customers. We welcome any publishing proposals from local authors/test developers.

Workshops & Training programs are sometimes organised to support the professional use of our assessments and to provide internationally-recognised certification for the purchase, use and interpretation for our emotional intelligence products.

We look forward to welcoming you as a customer of PAA.
