Summary
"The first section of the handbook covers psychometric aspects of testing. These aspects make up the quantitative underpinnings of testing and are applied, in various forms, in all applications of testing. Hubley and Zumbo provide a fine introduction to this section. After their chapter are chapters covering such traditional topics as reliability, validity, item analysis, equating and norming, test development strategies, factor analysis of test items and tests, the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing, and evaluating tests themselves. Some newer topics are also included and represent fresher approaches to testing; these chapters include generalizability theory, item response theory, test fairness, the measurement of change, item banking, and ethical issues in testing. To be sure, many of those topics have been around for 50 years, but they rarely have much impact on introductory testing textbooks, for example. The chapters in the Types of Testing section relate to various types of testing; these chapters include material on objective testing and performance assessments in education, objective personality assessment, editing items to improve test quality, testing language skills, and fairness reviews of test items. A section on testing and assessment in industrial and organizational psychology shares the first volume with the Test Theory and Types of Testing sections. This section has several introductory chapters, beginning with John P. Campbell's fine overview chapter, which outlines current and future practices. Other general chapters include those on work (job) analysis techniques, important individual cognitive difference variables, and performance appraisal. These chapters are followed by chapters relating to the types of variables used in making selection and placement decisions: biographical information, leadership, interviews, personality assessments, work samples, situational judgment measures, and holistic assessments. This section concludes with a couple of chapters on aspects of personnel selection in the modern world: multinational organizations and legal concerns in the job context. A few chapters also detail on-the-job work behaviors: counterproductive work behavior, stereotype threat, job satisfaction and other attitudes, and surveying workers"--Introduction.
