Responsible test use : case studies for assessing human behavior by Lorraine D Eyde( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psychological and educational tests are a fundamental tool of many professionals. This is certainly true for professionals in the organizations sponsoring this casebook.

Responsible Test Use: Case Studies for Assessing Human Behavior is an important publication because, if used widely, it should assist greatly in training professionals to use tests widely
