This undergraduate textbook examines how formal and informal tests are created, scored, and interpreted by mental health professionals when evaluating clients, and surveys the various techniques commonly used for assessing educational ability, intelligence, career and occupational aptitude, and clinical issues. The final section describes the Diagnostic and statistical manual, fourth edition (DSM-IV-TR), and walks through the process of writing an effective assessment report.
