From the Publisher"This masterful integration of theory and research focuses on the contributions of standardized psychological instruments to the assessment process. Very thoughtful chapters on the history of personality assessment, the assessment process, psychometrics, and ethical issues set the stage. This is likely the single best compilation that surveys the diverse methods that expert diagnostic consultants employ every single day." (Journal of Personality Assessment, 91(2), 2009)
"The majority of the Handbook provides knowledge, clear and distinct as Descartes (1641/1996) would have hoped, on the essentials—namely, history, administration, scoring, validity, interpretation, common applications, and psychometrics—of the most commonly used standardized psychological tests. Self-report inventories include the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 (MMPI-2), MMPI-A, Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory-III (MCMI-III), Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI), and revised NEO Personality Inventory, while the performance-based tests include the Rorschach (Inkblot Method), Thematic Apperception Test (TAT), and various figure-drawing and sentence completion methods. What's unusual among true believers—and Weiner and Greene are true believers in the best sense when it comes to standardized psychological tests—is the ease with which one is made aware of what is not known."
