The measurement assessment was created to give working technologists the opportunity to take boards, to keep technologists in the field by recognizing their experience, and to support the workforce. A skill-based assessment of measurement for electrode placement is a pre-requisite for both EEG Pathway III and Pathway IV. These pathways and skill assessments are being added based on concerns expressed by technologists in the field, the ABRET Board of Directors, and eligibility petitions.
