Product Overview

Your students will get valuable practice in interpreting actual excerpts from published test manuals.

Each of the 39 exercises begins with a guideline that helps students review the measurement concepts they will need in order to complete the exercise.

Background notes on each exercise describe the purpose of the test from which the excerpt was drawn.

Students answer questions that require them to locate and interpret important points in the excerpt.

The excerpts are largely unabridged so that students practice interpreting material as it is actually presented by test makers.

The skills they learn with this book can be easily transferred to other test manuals they may be using in the future.

Students have an ethical responsibility to be thoroughly familiar with the technical characteristics of the tests they will use. This book prepares them for this responsibility.

All major topics are covered, including:

validity

reliability

standard error of measurement

norm group composition

derived scores

scales to detect faking

item analysis

cultural bias

The excerpts are drawn from tests such as:

Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children

Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test

16PF

Stanford Binet Intelligence Scale

MMPI

Beck Depression Inventory

Stanford Achievement Test Series

KeyMath

and many others!
