Letter from the Indiana Assistant Attorney General to FACT

May 10, 2001

Mr. Lorin Letendre
Mr. Thomas W. Clawson
Ms. Wendi Schweiger
National Fair Access Coalition on Testing
3 Terrace Way, Suite D
Greensboro, NC  27403-3660

Dr. Mr. Letendre, Mr. Clawson, and Ms. Schweiger:

I am writing in regard to the letter that you sent to the Attorney General's office concerning a rule proposed by the Indiana Psychology Board that would have restricted the use of psychological tests.  Mr. Clawson, I believe I addressed your concerns in another response for the National Board for Certified Counselors, Inc. & Affiliates, but I wanted to respond to the letter sent by FACT was well.

The Board held a public meeting on April 20, 2001 and the rule was withdrawn.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.


Jennifer S. Thuma
Deputy Attorney General

Restricted Test List Repealed in Indiana
May 17, 2007 - Legislation providing the Indiana State Psychology Board’s authority to create a restricted test list (RTL) has been repealed. HB 1821 removes language originally included in the counselor licensure law which passed in 1997. While this language has been in statute for ten years, a RTL was never successfully adopted despite multiple attempts by the Indiana Psychology Board in the last ten years. Effective July 1, 2007, this new law removes the authority of the Indiana Board of Psychology to create a Restricted Test List (RTL).
