ASAP. Please provide webpage links where I can read the course
introduction, make the payment ? etc.
       Equivalent courses with similar syllabus but with different
titles will do.
       Coursework should be at the upper division undergraduate level.   
       Accreditation/recognition is important. It doesn't matter
whether it is in the U.S.

    Course content for coursework needed for entry is as follows

Testing principles, test development, evaluation and selection
including semantic differentials, Likert procedures, methods for
determining test validity and reliability, factor analysis, ethics.
May be taken in an education department. May not be an
assessment course.

       If you wonder why online and not (for example) in
correspondence, it is because I need to get this course done ASAP.
Therefore being able to do it in my pace is important. I wanted to
take them online because I thought it would be faster to send
assignments or requests and get feedbacks. However, if any
correspondence courses fit my needs, I'd take them into consideration
as well.

       An easier course is preferred since I'm really under time
pressure. Thanks a lot!

Hello aprilmoon-ga,

I?ve located several courses that should meet your needs. There are a
lot more courses for Tests and Measurements or Psychological Testing
at the graduate level. I found very few classes for Differential
Psychology as it seems to be included as a section of the various
testing classes instead.

I hope that you will be able to find a class that will allow you to
complete your program as soon as possible.

Best wishes for your education and career.
