Summary
The Elements of Mental Tests provides an introduction to mental testing and the use of psychological and educational measures. Part I, The Elements of Measurement, covers what tests are, how they are written, and some of the psychological principles behind how they work. Part II, The Elements of Test Scores, explains in reader-friendly language some key mathematical ideas behind how tests measure what they do, drawing on both classical and contemporary test theory. Part III, The Elements of Test Quality, explains the criteria of a good test, including how to decide if a test measures what it is supposed to, and related issues of high-quality psychological assessment. Each of the 12 brief chapters that collectively make up the book are clear, simple, and to the point
