Overview

Research aimed at developing new approaches to testing of complex intellectual processes occupies the forefront of psychology and education. Testing examines the ongoing research efforts into information processing techniques and measures by the military and academic research and development communities.

Leading experts and professionals from a variety of backgrounds focus on improvements in measuring broadly defined tests of aptitude and on innovations in measuring intellectual skill. Four main topics treated are: advances in testing; new methods of testing; new aptitude measures; dimensions of job performance.
