PsycCRITIQUES. . . an important addition to the literature regarding standardized testing in psychology and education. Correcting Fallacies presents a perspective on psychological and educational testing that needs to be presented to balance the debate. The text is appropriate for all in the fields of education, including school psychology, educational psychology, and higher education administration. It is also highly relevant to those in the fields of vocational rehabilitation, college admissions, and teacher education programs. I plan to recommend this book to many of my colleagues as a way of opening informed debate regarding the validity and necessity for educational testing.
Throughout the text, sensitive subjects in the field of testing are discussed in a clear and concise manner. Topics such as heritability of intelligence, cultural bias of intelligence tests, socioeconomic factors in college admissions tests, and racial discrimination in job testing are handled in an objective and open fashion.
