The Gf-Gc Cross-Battery Assessment is the definite reference on ALL major psychological tests. In light of recent advances in intelligence theory and research, this is the first comprehensive volume which provides an analysis and synthesis of the major intelligence batteries according to contemporary theory and research. This book has four primary goals: (1) to describe the comprehensive and empirically supported theories of intelligence, (2) to provide a "Desk Reference" that describes the psychometric characteristics abilities of all major intelligence tests, (3) to present a "cross-battery" approach to measuring intellectual functioning, and (4) to offer the latest in research and intellectual assessment. This book succeeds where no other book does. Practicing psychologists and researchers. A Longwood Professional Book

Incl. referral concerns/needs of culturally/linguistically diverse populations, academic achievement, limitations etc.

Editorial Reviews

The desk reference section provides a comprehensive description of the critical features of individually administered intelligence tests, including quantitative and qualitative comparative information for the major intelligence batteries. Test information is presented in a visual-graphic consumer's report format, allowing practitioners to quickly assess which tests can be used most effectively for a given purpose. In addition to the eight major intelligence batteries, the ITDR includes a chapter that describes 18 special purpose tests and batteries. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
