Overview

This three-volume handbook is a comprehensive presentation of the theory and application of tests in psychology and education. It begins with an in-depth portrayal of psychometrics: the quantitative underpinning of testing. It then provides thorough, up-to-date and informative chapters related to five general application areas of testing:

  • industrial/organizational psychology
  • clinical psychology (including health psychology)
  • counseling psychology
  • school psychology
  • educational testing

In each of these five areas, this handbook is probably the most comprehensive review of the use of testing and assessment in the subfield.

Reviews & Awards
An expansive overview of the techniques and purposes of assessments. Each essay is very informative and focuses on a particular aspect of the topic. This discussion offers an excellent examination of the idea of assessment rather than simply a list of tests. Highly recommended.
