"Theresa Kline guides readers through the process of designing and evaluating a test, paying careful attention to ensure that the test meets the highest professional standards. Kline uses simple, clear examples throughout and fully details the required statistical analyses." "Psychological Testing is perfectly suited as a main text for upper-level undergraduate and graduate testing or psychometrics courses in departments of Psychology, Education, Sociology, Management, and in the Human Services disciplines. Professional researchers, educators, and consultants will also want to add this to their libraries for up-to-date coverage of test design and evaluation techniques."--BOOK JACKET.
