Overview PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING: PRINCIPLES, APPLICATIONS, AND ISSUES, Eighth Edition explains the fundamentals of psychological testing, their important applications, and the controversies that emerge from those applications in clinical, education, industrial, and legal settings. Robert M. Kaplan and Dennis P. Saccuzzo's engaging and thorough text demonstrates how psychological tests are constructed and used, both in a professional setting and in everyday lives. Part I focuses on the core concepts that affect the evaluation of all tests. Part II discusses the major types of psychological tests, while Part III looks at present-day issues affecting testing such as bias, laws, and ethics. Chapters are independent enough to allow instructors to structure their class to achieve course objectives. A multitude of test profiles and sample items illustrate how psychological testing is used and reported. Real-life case studies demonstrate the uses and misuses of psychological testing, helping to maximize student interest, while "Technical Example" boxes assist students in grasping complex statistical concepts.
