The Handbook of Psychological Testing Summary

The Handbook of Psychological Testing by Paul Kline

The Handbook of Psychological Testing provides a comprehensive and modern guide to all aspects of psychological testing. It covers psychometric theory and its application in the construction of tests, applied psychometrics in the vocational, educational, occupational and clinical fields, and an evaluative list of the best psychological tests. The theoretical section includes detailed accounts of classical test theory, including factor analysis and item characteristic curve theories. This description of the different types of test reveals their strengths and weaknesses for test users, and their applications in various practical fields of psychology are fully discussed. Finally there is a description and evaluation of the best tests so far produced. Appendices of formulae and definitions of technical terms are included to aid understanding of the text. Handling the sometimes complex mathematics with considerable clarity, The Handbook of Psychological Testing combines academic precision with practical and comprehensible application. The only clear, modern account of psychometrics to be found in one volume, it will be required reading for all psychologists and students of psychology who are concerned with testing in any form.
