Essential of psychological assessment series


Homack (neuropsychology, Baylor U. Medical Center) and Reynolds (educational psychology, Texas A&M U.) cover four of the most common tests used in clinical and school settings, namely the Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test (second edition), the Reynolds Intellectual Screening Test, the Wechsler Abbreviated Scale of Intelligence and the Wide Range Intelligence Test. They review the uses of such brief intelligence tests within the context of a full range of assessments, describe situations in which certain tests are more efficacious, and provide sample evaluations. They provide reviews of each test including key concepts and illustrative material, and include self-test questions to be sure readers have a full grasp of the assessment techniques, scoring methods, and implications for therapies.
