A proven classic in the field, "Psychological Testing and Assessment" has been completely updated, offering extensive coverage of new tests, inventories, and scales, and the methods used in constructing, administering, scoring, and interpreting these psychometric instruments. Revisions in the content and format of college entrance examinations, new editions of various tests, and renewed interest in the "politics of intelligence testing" drive Aiken's eleventh edition. Greater attention has also been given to adaptive testing, item response theory, the use of computers in psychological testing, neuropsychological and developmental testing, and applications of tests in various contexts. This is an essential text for any student who is planning to construct, administer, and make decisions based on test scores in clinical or educational settings.
