Psychological Testing and Assessment: An Introduction to Tests and Measurement Workbook is the standard-setting text workbook 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.

This workbook supplies the tools students need to achieve knowledge- and skills-building goals. It contains supplementary readings that expand and elaborate on the material in the textbook. It contains independent research exercises in which the students continue where the textbook authors left-off; the task in those exercises will be to update and expand upon the material presented. This book also contains valuable tools for mentally and behaviorally rehearsing many skills demanded of assessment professionals.
