12 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 572 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. Yet a persistent and troublesome problem in educational and psychological measurement has been the misuse of test data. This is generally not due to any intentional misinterpretation.

Unfortunately, they frequently are unable to do so because of inadequate training in testing. 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
