Book Description :

More than a half-century has passed since Cronbachs distinction between the correlational and experimental approaches in psychology. Yet measurement today is not much better integrated with psychological theory than it was in the late 1950s, and many argue that the traditional psychometric model itself may have introduced constraints that have limited the integration of measurement and theory. Measuring Psychological Constructs seeks to break through these constraints by offering conceptual alternatives to traditional item-response theorys fixed-content/multiple-choice models. This edited volumes contributors present groundbreaking explanatory approaches to model-based measurement that provide various psychological constructs with more authentic measures such as constructed-response tasks and performance assessment. These new explanatory approaches not only extend rigorous psychometric methods to a variety of major psychological constructs, but also have the potential to change fundamentally the nature of the constructs that are being measured. Grounded in psychometrics and quantitative assessment, and in the history and major theoretical approaches of psychology, Measuring Psychological Constructs is aimed at students, teachers, researchers, and practitioners alike, in variety of psychology subdisciplines that include developmental and geriatric, industrial/organizational, clinical and counseling, educational, social and personality, experimental, neuropsychology, health and rehabilitation, and quantitative psychology.

Book Description :

Psychological Testing: Theory, And Applications prepares students to quantify observations through the use of psychological tests. This new title is the first psychological testing book to devote forty percent of its coverage to psychometric theory. In a detailed account, Professor Janda explains why measurement is critical to all sub-areas of psychology. The developing psychologist is concerned with measuring children's intelligence, creativity, and moral development. The counseling psychologist is committed to using tests to help clients learn what career choices offer the best match with their interests and abilities. The educational psychologist must measure how much learning has occurred in the past and the types of educational experiences that can facilitate future learning. Personality and social psychologists find it necessary to develop new measures to allow them to investigate their current theories and constructs. The I/O psychologist predicts and measures job performance, and clinical psychologists want to assess psychopathology and predict response to treatment. Even experimental psychologists utilize psychological tests to study phenomena such as brain-behavior relationships. The author conveys how these principles are used to develop tests and how reviewers rely on them to evaluate tests. Every text comes with FREE Student Tutorial on disk. In an engaging and accessible writing style, students will grasp the psychometric principles easily. Students will benefit from Professor Janda's sound, practical advice for evaluating and selecting tests, as well as how to achieve test results that affect their lives. The text unfolds with coverage of the specialty areas in psychology. Secondly, the book discusses the extent to which tests are actually used. By utilizing Psychological Testing, Theory, and Applications, students will gain an appreciation and an understanding of how psychological tests impact society.

Book Description :

The study of the relationship between the person and the situation has had a long history in psychology. Many theories of personality are set on an interpersonal stage and many social phenomena are played out differently as the cast of characters change. At times the study of persons and situations has been contentious, however, recent interest in process models of personality and social interaction have focused on the ways people navigate, influence, and are influenced by their social worlds. Personality and Social Behavior contains a series of essays on topics where a transactional analysis of the person and situation has proved most fruitful. Contributions span the personality and social psychology spectrum and include such topics as new units in personality; neuroscience perspectives on interpersonal personality; social and interpersonal frameworks for understanding the self and self-esteem; and personality process analyses of romantic relationships, prejudice, health, and leadership. This volume provides essential reading for researchers with an interest in this core topic in social psychology and may also be used as a text on related upper-level courses.
