APA handbooks in psychology


Each set in the series--this is the ninth--provides graduate students, researchers, clinicians, and practitioners in psychology and allied behavioral fields with a broad and deep reference on some aspect of the discipline and profession. The three volumes cover testing and assessment respectively in industrial and organizational psychology, in clinical and counseling psychology, and in school psychology and education. The first volume also considers test theory, and the third volume contains the index for the three volumes, which are paged separately. The topics include applying the uni-dimensional item response theory model to psychological data, objective personality testing, stereotype threats in workplace assessments, legal issues in clinical and counseling testing and assessment, assessing self-efficacy, assessment in marriage and family counseling, individual assessment of academic achievement, considerations for achievement testing of students with individual needs, and adapting tests for use in other languages and cultures.
