Over the last several decades, psychological testing and assessment has grown to be one of the most prolific research areas in psychology. Testing has expanded to include evaluation and treatment of childhood disorders of development, learning and behavior; tests are being published at an increasing rate; and the scholarly literature on the topic abounds. Providing practitioners, researchers, professors, and students with an invaluable resource, this unique two-volume set presents a comprehensive reference to child assessment that encompasses the breadth and depth of this field in a single source. For convenience, the two volumes focus on intelligence and personality respectively. Together, they cover a broad base of domains in children's psychological and educational assessment including such diverse areas as academic achievement, intelligence, adaptive behavior, personality, and creativity assessment. With a unique emphasis on practical issues in the assessment process, the volumes offer detailed discussion of commonly used tests such as the WISC-R, the K-ABC, and the Rorschach, and also examine general methods such as projective story-telling techniques. Covering the gamut of assessment issues, chapters range from discussions on the use of intelligence measures such as the Binet 4, to ethical issues, to such specific topics as the assessment of linguistic minority children. Chapter contributions are by eminent psychologists and educators in the field of assessment with special expertise in research or practice in their topic areas. The chapters purposely vary from an emphasis on specific applications in assessment to cutting edge knowledge and critiques of research and statistical procedures. The breadth of this text makes it an invaluable guide for professionals responsible for the assessment of children and adolescents. Researchers who study aspects of children's assessment and psychodiagnostics will find it a comprehensive resource. These volumes also may serve as texts for graduate level courses in intellectual and personality assessment, practica and internship course work, and courses on psychodiagnostics, psychopathology, and special education.
