Given the dearth of research in tele-assessment methods for direct assessments, practitioners are forced to seek guidance. This study demonstrated that different sources of guidance provided different recommendations. In general, test publishers were more likely to rate information as “some caution” to “no concerns;” whereas, funding agencies were more likely to rate information as, “do not use.” National organizations (e.g., APA, NASP, etc.) were more likely to fall in between these two groups. Research-based suggestions will be provided.
