Product description

Psychological tests provide reliable and objective standards by which individuals can be evaluated in education and employment. Therefore accurate judgements must depend on the reliability and quality of the tests themselves. This handbook by an internationally acknowledged expert provides an introductory and comprehensive treatment of the business of constructing good tests.

Paul Kline shows how to construct a test and then to check that it is working well. Covering most kinds of tests, including modern computer presented tests, Rasch scaling and tailored testing, A Handbook of test Construction offers
* a clear introduction to this complex field
* a glossary of specialist terms
* an explanation of the objective of reliability
* step-by-step guidance through the statistical procedures
* a description of the techniques used in constructing and standardising tests
* guidelines with examples for writing the test items
* computer programs for many of the techniques

Students on course in occupational, educational and clinical psychology, as well as in psychological testing itself, will find this a valuable source of information, guidance and clear explanation.
