The purposes of the Society for Personality Assessment Graduate Student Association (SPAGS) are to:

  • Facilitate the exchange of ideas of graduate students within the Society for Personality Assessment (SPA), and foster professional interaction with SPA members.
  • Promote and provide recognition for quality student assessment research efforts.
  • Encourage membership in SPA and SPAGS committees and events, and retention of members.
  • Promote reliable and valid means of psychological assessment.
  • Maintain communication between SPAGS, and graduate training institutions.


Students who are accepted as members in good standing of the SPA are members of SPAGS. Students applying for membership are understood to be enrolled in a regionally accredited graduate psychology program or a similar program from a previously agreed upon related field.
