This classic, authoritative introduction to psychological testing is widely hailed for its broad coverage and its ability to cover "graduate school" topics in terms that one with little testing experience can understand. This book familiarizes the reader with the basics of test construction and prepares the reader to effectively evaluate different tests, choose tests for particular purposes and individual examines, and interpret scores properly.

Synopsis:

The 1990's have witnessed a continuation and expansion of the upsurge of interest in psychological testing that was evident in the 1980's. This growth is indicated by the development of new tests some representing novel approaches as well as by the revisions of earlier tests and continued research on existing tests. In selecting instruments for mention or discussion, a primary goal was to expose readers to the rich variety of measurement tools available in the field today, as well as to some historically significant tests and techniques: and attempt to cover the field or even a significant segment of it in a comprehensive fashion would have been clearly beyond the scope of this book.
