Summary

Responsible Test Use, an interdisciplinary reference source for promoting quality assurance in testing, consists of 85 training cases that illustrate a variety of problems related to test use. Twenty-eight of the cases are new for this second edition. Each case is drawn from real life and includes: a description of the incident; focus questions to encourage active involvement with issues raised by the case; an analysis of the problems posed plus possible ways of better handling the situation; and a listing of empirically-derived dimensions of test misuse that are likely to generalize to new testing situations. Cases developed for this edition represent three test settings that were not covered in the previous edition: computer and internet testing formats, forensic, and cross cultural-English language learners. In addition, revised cases cover counseling and training, education, employment, mental health, neuropsychology, and speech-language-hearing settings.
