Since publication in its first edition the Handbook of Psychological Testing has become the standard text for organisational and educational psychologists. It offers the only comprehensicve, modern and clear account of the whole of the field of psychometrics. It covers psychometric theory, the different kinds of psychological test, applied psychological testing, and the evaluation of the best published psychological tests. It is outstanding for its detailed and complete coverage of the field, its clarity (even for the non-mathematical) and its emphasis on the practical application of psychometric theory in psychology and education, as well as in vocational, occupational and clinical fields. For this second edition the Handbook has been extensively revised and updated to include the latest research and thinking in the field. Unlike other work in this area, it challenges the scientific rigour of conventional psychometrics and identifies groundbreaking new ways forward.

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.

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.
