PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING: PRINCIPLES, APPLICATIONS, AND ISSUES, Eighth Edition, discusses the fundamentals of psychological testing and examines test applications as well as present-day testing controversies.
This was required for my Psychometric’s class, otherwise I would have never thought to look into it. As usual, it was much more cost efficient to get the text through amazon than the university bookstore or any other local text book seller that I know of. I found the textbook easy enough to follow and digest, even for the chapters that I didn’t find particularly interesting. This version doesn’t have the most up to date information, but the basic principles are the same and there proved to be many things I’d never considered before.
This was a required text for one of my classes on psychological testing. It’s really a great read. There are so many fascinating topics it covers, including very mundane and dry ones. I liked the writing style and the layout was easy to follow. I highly recommend renting this book, although I did contemplate keeping it. I’m sure I’ll get more instruction on this topic in graduate school, but it definitely made a boring class pretty exceptional. It has a lot of historical content and suggestions for tests. I’m definitely a better test–taker/test-evaluator because of it. It really drills into your head reliability and validity, so it helps with experimental scientific side of psychology as well.
