Chapter 1 begins with the historical development of personality assessment, in order to give a perspective for understanding contemporary practice. Chapter 2 contains a brief excursion into concepts and theory, placing the field in a broader context with respect to science in general and psychology in particular. Chapters 3 through 5 tell "how it is done," concentrating more on the principles underlying modern methods of assessment than on giving practical advice in using these methods. Chapters 6 through 9 discuss a number of important and basic issues in assessment, all related to the question of whether and how assessment should be carried out-from statistical, ethical, and professional viewpoints

An attempt was made to show how nonintellective personality variables are related to achievement in college among student groups of high, average, and low intellectual abilities. The design of the study related personality to grades within different levels of ability to determine whether relationships varied from one level to another. Approximately 7,500 subjects at 3 different universities were tested. The resulting data were studied by analyzing levels of ability and configural variables of personality as they related to student grade point average. There were no identifiable patterns of personality characteristics which seemed to be consistently related to success in college, other than a tendency for more intellectually oriented males to obtain higher grades. There was some indication, however, that personality is more closely associated with achievement in the middle ranges of ability than is ability itself. This funding provided a completely different area apparently deserving further study. It was also suggested that a second significant conclusion be pursued--that apparently different institutions place varying emphasis upon the importance of personality in college achievement. (Jh)
