A "toolkit" for professional psychology to assess student and practitioner competence is presented. This toolkit builds on a growing and long history of competency initiatives in professional psychology, as well as those in other health care disciplines. Each tool is a specific method to assess competence, appropriate to professional psychology. The methods are defined and described; information is presented about their best use, psychometrics, strengths and challenges; and future directions are outlined. Finally, the implications of professional psychology's current shift to a "culture of competency," including the challenges to implementing ongoing competency assessment, are discussed., (C) 2009 by the American Psychological Association
