Various professions have created models with the theory in mind that the assessment of professional competency will enhance the quality assurance and conduct of professional practice. The effectiveness and implications of those models' professional competence whether as developmental, impermanent, or content specific are assessed in the field of psychometrics. Key factors include validity, feasibility, fidelity, and the specified use of the assessment itself. The Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB), founded in 1961, functions as a licensure/registration assessment—the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP), whereas the works of International Test Commission provide a functional structure for developing and interpreting for use within and across nations. Methodological quantitative and qualitative examinations in other professions in assessing their competencies are cultural; its complexity derived by differences in recognition of functional and rudimentary competencies, in interaction of scope and practice in regions across the world, and in basic attitudes towards assessment.
