9780070451001: Foundations of Psychological Testing

Authors Sandra McIntire and Leslie Miller have accomplished what few before them have been able to. They have written a Psychological Testing book that is designed to lay a true foundation for learning and understanding. The primary objective of this text is not to dwell on the details of individual psychological tests, but to focus on the core concepts/psychometrics required to gain an appreciation of how to use the tests properly. Written in response to a growing need for a textbook on psychological testing conducive to maximal student learning, An Introduction Psychological Testing, gives students an understanding of the basic concepts, issues and tools used in psychological testing. It then effectively illustrates how these concepts, issues, and tools are relevant to them in everyday educational, clinical, and organizational settings.
