Appropriate for undergraduate/graduate courses in psychological testing, tests and measurements, and test construction.

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

Synopsis:

This text offers broad coverage of test construction, test evaluation, and the interpretation and use of test results. Earlier chapters teach students familiar concepts of test construction, like norms. Complex procedures, such as item analysis, appear later in the text. Students gain confidence through a gradual understanding of increasingly difficult topics, rather than memorization of the chronological steps of test construction. The book discusses the main issues involved in testing - understanding of test construction principles, knowledge of assessed behaviour, and the broad range of tests available. It also examines social and ethical principles of psychological testing, allowing students to note sensitive issues that confront psychologists. Graphs, diagrams, and worked examples help students to understand testing principles.

From the Back Cover:

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.
