This classic, authoritative introduction to psychological testing is widely hailed for its broad coverage and its ability to cover "graduate school" topics in terms that one with little testing experience can understand.

"A recent study of opinion among industrial psychologists revealed a very general agreement that a course on the several fields would serve as an excellent orientation for the graduate student. While there have been several textbooks written by single authors for such a course, the editor feels that psychology is now so specialized that it is difficult for one writer to survey adequately the significant developments in all the fields. The interpretation of a field to the student can best be accomplished by a writer who is himself immersed in that field. He then writes as an intimate insider rather than as an appraising outsider. His feeling for the right emphases, unless he is a one-sided worker in that field, can seldom be matched by that of an outsider. For these and other reasons, the editor believes that the textbook for this course should be in the nature of a symposium, written by contributors who have shown by their previous writings that they are very much at home in their respective fields. The order of the chapters in this volume is somewhat arbitrary. They may be taught in almost any preferred sequence. The adopted sequence places the main theoretical fields first, beginning with the developmental approach. The chapters on differential psychology end this first section, since individual differences emerge from developmental causes, from social factors, and from causes that tend to induce abnormalities. The transition from differential to educational and clinical problems is very direct. The divisions of other applied fields and their order were agreed upon after much exchange of ideas on the part of the contributors. The more special fields of physiological psychology and aesthetics do not fit readily into the sequence of the first section on theoretical fields. The somewhat abstruse subject of points of view comes appropriately after the more concrete material, when the student is more ready to appreciate the reasons for divergent systematic approaches to psychology. The omission of a chapter on experimental psychology may seem a serious oversight to some readers. The term "experimental psychology" is losing its traditional meaning, however, as a separate and distinct field. All fields are becoming more and more experimental, and so the term is coming to refer to a method rather than a field"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)

"In this book, we have gathered together the perceptions of distinguished scholars in applied psychology about the field's history and its relevance to contemporary practice. The five chapters are derived from the Master Lecture Series presented during the 1992 APA Centennial Convention in Washington, DC. In each lecture, the task of the presenter was to discuss historical aspects of an applied psychology field and to draw contemporary relevance from its history"Preface.

Fields of psychology : basic and applied by J. P Guilford( Book )

12 editions published between 1950 and 1963 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Psychology has grown probably as much during the last ten years since the first edition of this volume was written as in any two or three previous decades combined. This is more true of some of its fields than of others. It is still too early to assess all the developments properly and to incorporate them into a treatment at this rather elementary level. This volume has emphasized the more enduring aspects of the fields. It is important, however, to make changes where the most significant developments have occurred. This the revising authors have attempted to do." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)

The validation of a biographical inventory as a predictor of college success; development and validation of the scoring key by College Entrance Examination Board( Book )

20 editions published in 1960 in English and Undetermined and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is Part I of a 3 part project report on the validation of a biographical inventory as a predictor of college success. This part, dealing with the development and validation of a scoring key for the Biographical Inventory, covers the major quantitative analysis of the data. Part ii is concerned with sociometric and interview contingency factors in college success. Part iii is an intensive study of discordant cases. The classes of 1958 and 1959 at Fordham College provided the initial and cross-validation samples. Although academic achievement was taken into account, the criterion of college success emphasized nonintellectual factors and was shown to be differentiable from the usual grade-point average criterion. Analysis of other aptitude, achievement, personality, and interest tests indicated that the Biographical Inventory differentiated more effectively than the other predictors. Possibilities for further research in other college environments are suggested. (Author/DS)
