Theories, Tests, and Issues Second Edition
Publisher: The Guilford Press
New York, NY
2005, 667 pages
This comprehensive work provides the most current information
about theory and research on assessment of intellectual abilities
and processes. Leading test authors, theorists and scholars review
the conceptual and research underpinnings of recent editions of
intelligence tests, including the WISC-IV, KABC-II, SB5 and WJ III,
and offer recommendations for interpretation.
"Truly an exceptional contribution. This volume should be
required text for all students of intellectual assessment…
Contributors have been selected from the best and most highly
respected scholars in the area of intelligence and cognition, and
their well-written chapters seamlessly integrate theory and
practice. If I were to purchase only one professional book for my
library this year, it would be this essential work."
