Foundations of Psychological Testing: A Practical Approach provides students with a clear and accessible introduction to the field of psychological testing. The primary objective of this text is to focus on the testing process and the core psychometric concepts required to gain an appreciation of how to use and interpret tests properly rather than the details of individual psychological tests. Written to be the psychological testing book most conducive to student learning, this book 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 everyday educational, clinical, and organizational settings. Updated with the latest Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing this fifth edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect contemporary, relevant, and interesting information, examples, and research.
