Psychological Testing and Assessment: An Introduction to Tests and Measurement.

“Psychological Testing and Assessment: An Introduction to Tests and Measurement” is the standard-setting text that through seven editions has overviewed measurement in psychology with unrivaled depth, breadth, and clarity. Logically organized and lucidly written, this book acquaints readers with important historical, legal, ethical, and cultural issues, and then proceeds to provide readers with the information necessary to understand psychometric concepts such as reliability, validity, and utility. Through writing that effectively anchors abstract concepts to real-life applications – and through the use of innovative teaching tools such as ‘Just Think’ questions and the ‘Everyday Psychometrics’ features in the text – readers will come away with a well-rounded, working knowledge of psychometrics and the assessment enterprise in a contemporary, real world context.

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    In my assessment class, we haven’t used the book outside of regular chapter readings. I’ve used it as a reference for the assignments we are doing and for the midterm we are about to take. For instance, it explains that calculations of Z and T scores, standard deviations, and reliability/validity in detail. It has been helpful in explaining things that I didn’t grasp completely during lecture. My professor is an excellent lecturer and I know that I can usually get the clarification I need from from taking my time and just reading. However, I noticed that the yellow sticker (label) at the bottom right of the cover says (for use outside the United States). It’s an international student version, which can’t be resold in North America. There is also content in this version that is not in the version sold here in the U.S. I don’t know exactly what it is or what that means in terms of usefulness to me for my class or as a future clinician, but I was a little concerned. I don’t know if I should be or not, but the label wasn’t clear as you can tell by looking at it on the amazon web page. When you enlarge it to see the cover, the label is not there, so go figure. Otherwise, it’s in English and it has been helpful and I planned to keep it.
