Summary

Tom Hogan's Psychological Testing: A Practical Introduction emphasizes active learning strategies to provide a practical introduction to the field of testing in psychology and allied disciplines. A rigorous yet accessible text, Psychological Testing is uniquely written as a learning device as opposed to a reference work, encouraging students to apply the material they are learning to real-life, contemporary situations. Part I covers the basic concepts of psychological testing, while Part II provides an introduction to the major categories of psychological tests. For each category, a chapter outlines the major conceptual and procedural approaches and gives examples of tests in the category.
