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.
