PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING: PRINCIPLES, APPLICATIONS, AND ISSUES, Ninth Edition explains the fundamentals of psychological testing, their important applications, and the controversies that emerge from those applications in clinical, education, industrial, medical, and legal settings. Kaplan and Saccuzzo's engaging and thorough text demonstrates how psychological tests are constructed and used, both in a professional setting and in everyday lives. It explains core concepts that affect the evaluation of all tests, major types of psychological tests, and current issues affecting testing such as stereotype threat, bias, laws, and ethics. Chapters are independent enough to allow instructors to structure their class to achieve course objectives. Test profiles and sample items illustrate how psychological testing is used and reported. Case studies demonstrate the uses and misuses of psychological testing, while technical examples assist students in grasping complex statistical concepts.
