Book Description :

Winner of the British Psychological Society's Textbook Award 2019. Psychological tests are everywhere. They are widely used by practitioners, researchers, clinicians, and educators -anyone, in fact, who needs to measure various aspects of personality, cognitive abilities, mood and suchlike. Psychometrics is the science of psychological assessment. It covers the construction, use and interpretation of psychological tests of all kinds – from simple questionnaires measuring personality, moods and attitudes, through to specialised tests measuring IQ and other mental abilities. Psychological Testing: Theory and Practice provides test users, test developers, practitioners and researchers in the social sciences, education and health with an evaluative guide to choosing, using, interpreting and developing tests. Its aim is to give readers a thorough grasp of the principles (and limitations) of testing, together with the necessary methodological detail. Unusually for an introductory text, it includes coverage of several cutting-edge techniques. If you find mathematics frightening and statistics dull, this engaging text will help you to understand the fundamental principles of psychometrics, that underpin the measurement of any human characteristic using any psychological test. The book is accompanied by additional resources, including a set of spreadsheets which use simulated data and other techniques to illustrate important issues, and allow users to understand various statistical procedures work, without getting bogged down in mathematical detail. These are fully integrated into the text. This is an essential introduction for all students of psychology and related disiplines, as well as a useful resource for practitioners and those seeking accreditation in psychological testing.

Book Description :

"Psychological tests and other tools of assessment may differ with respect to a number of variables, such as content, format, administration procedures, scoring and interpretation procedures, and technical quality. The content (subject matter) of the test will, of course, vary with the focus of the particular test. But even two psychological tests purporting to measure the same thing-for example, personality-may differ widely in item content. This is so because two test developers might have entirely different views regarding what is important in measuring "personality"; different test developers employ different definitions of "personality." Additionally, different test developers come to the test development process with different theoretical orientations"--

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 :

There is a considerable amount of interest within pediatrics and pri mary health care that is currently being directed toward the behavioral and emotional problems of childhood. Traditionally, these areas have been emphasized by child psychiatrists, child psychologists, and psy chiatric social workers. Now, however, the detection and, in some cases, the assessment and treatment of children with these types of disturb ances fall within the province of primary child health care profession als. Even when the child psychiatrist or child psychologist provides the primary mental health treatment for the child, specialists such as pediatricians, family physicians, pediatric nurses, pediatric nurse prac titioners, and speech therapists remain instrumental in support of the ongoing psychotherapeutic process as providers of some other aspect of total health care to the child and family. For these pediatricians, family physicians, and other nonpsychol ogist primary health care providers, it is essential to acquire an under standing and effective working knowledge of important psychological information and concepts to utilize within their own framework and professional responsibilities. In order that this may be accomplished, these professionals with limited backgrounds in psychology must better understand how psychologists themselves assess children and how they derive the conclusions reflected in the statements and reports that are shared with members of their own and other disciplines. In short, nonpsychologists must become substantially more familiar with psy chological assessment, particularly with psychological testing and the subsequent reporting of results.
