To use these tests properly, professionals need an authoritative source of advice and guidance on how to administer, score, and interpret them. Written by school psychologist Douglas K.

Each concise chapter features numerous callout boxes highlighting key concepts, bulleted points, and extensive illustrative material, as well as test questions that help you gauge and reinforce your grasp of the information covered. Essentials of Individual Achievement Assessment provides step-by-step guidance on test administration, scoring, and interpretation.
