Psychological testing of Hispanics by Kurt F Geisinger( Book )

23 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and held by 929 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fully revised to take into account a new generation of assessment research as well as the dynamic changes within America's Hispanic community, this book provides an up-to-date overview of the clinical testing of Hispanic clients. Today's research on Hispanic clients, their respective cultures and environments, and their psychological health has led to an explosion of measures tailored to their unique needs. This volume provides essential updates on how to use intelligence, neuropsychological, and other clinical measures and stands as a call to arms to increase awareness and understanding of a rapidly evolving demographic. This is an important text for practitioners who wish to improve their competency in working with this still underserved population"--Publicity materials.

APA handbook of testing and assessment in psychology by Kurt F Geisinger( Book )

19 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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.

High-stakes testing in education : science and practice in K-12 settings by James A Bovaird( Book )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Educational assessment and, more broadly, educational research in the United States have entered into an era characterized by a dramatic increase in the prevalence and importance of test score use in accountability systems. This volume covers a selection of contemporary issues about testing science and practice that impact the nation's public education system, including local and state assessment development, assessing special populations, charter schools, and the role of college placement and entrance examinations. Also featured is a section focusing on validation practices, defining, and interpreting resulting test scores. Specific topics include the role of examinee motivation, obtaining and making decisions based on validity evidence, evidence of consequences, and considering contextual sampling effects when evaluating validity evidence. This text is for measurement practitioners, scholars, and advanced graduate students involved in researching and implementing practice and policies for high stakes testing. It will serve as a valuable reference for practitioners and an excellent resource for graduate level seminars in high stakes testing"--Publicity materials.

"The reliability and validity of information obtained from any psychological test is dependent on the scope and psychometric attributes of the instrument used. As in all areas of science, what psychologists discover depends on the quality of the instruments used and the information they provide as well as skillful interpretation of the test results. Better conceptualized instruments yield more accurate and informative data than do weaker instruments. Instruments that uncover more useful information about the individual being examined are more valid and ultimately better inform both researchers and clinicians. The tools school psychologists choose for diagnostic decision making substantially influence the reliability and validity of the information they obtain and the decisions they make. Simply put, the better the tool is, the more valid and reliable the decisions; the more useful the information obtained is, the better the services provided. In this chapter, some important issues regarding quality and effectiveness of the tools used in school psychology are discussed"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved)

Use of tests with schoolchildren : final project report by Anne Anastasi( Book )

4 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How standardized achievement and mental ability tests are used in the schools, and what parents and teachers think about such testing, were investigated. Guided inventories were administered to 207 teachers from 10 schools and to 223 parents from 12 Parent-Teacher Association groups. Intensive individual interviews were conducted with 15 testing coordinators with responsibility for district-wide testing decisions. Teacher inventory covered personal data, testing activities and use of test scores, test opinions, and familiarity with testing concepts and interpretive context. Parent inventory covered personal data, attitudes toward testing in general and toward specific educational uses of tests, knowledge about uses of tests in own child's school, reactions to own child being tested, and extent and nature of feedback received about child's test performance. Results for teachers, testing coordinators, and parents are reported in separate chapters. A discussion section integrates findings from these parts and presents implications, with special focus on testing communications at several levels. Teacher inventories, parent attitude measures, and test coordinators' interview questions are appended. (Author/GK)

Testing Limited English Proficient Students for Minimum Competency and High School Graduation by Kurt F Geisinger( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At present, states have no consistent manner in which limited-English-proficient (LEP) students are assessed on statewide or district-level minimum competency examinations. In some states, LEP students need to take the same minimum competency examinations under the same rules as other students to graduate or be promoted. Competency tests have the capacity to improve the education of the students in our country's schools. To be effective, however, they need to be linked closely to instruction. That is, they need to have high instructional and curricular validity. Furthermore, the curriculum needs to drive the content of the examinations rather than vice versa. One must question whether a minimum competency test can possibly be equally valid from the perspective of curricular and instructional validity and not biased for LEP students, on the very basis of their differential needs and educational programs. For competency tests to be most useful for improving the education of LEP students, it is imperative that the tests be closely tied to the curriculum, be thoroughly integrated with the curriculum, aim toward providing diagnostic instructional and remedial feedback, provide scores that are readily interpretable by educational professionals, and become less threatening than they appear to have become. Responses to the paper by Michelle Hewlett-Gomez and Lawrence Rudner are appended. (VWL)
