About the Book
Designed to complement the Mental Measurements Yearbooks, Tests in Print fills a pressing need for a comprehensive bibliography of commercially available English language tests. Although these volumes are useful in and of themselves, their maximum usefulness requires the availability and use of the Mental Measurements Yearbooks. Information on available tests and specific test bibliographies are valuable, but the greatest service Tests in Print can perform is to encourage test users to choose tests more wisely by consulting Mental Measurements Yearbooks test reviews; test reviews from journals; and professional literature on the construction, use, and psychometric properties of tests under consideration.
Tests in Print X contains descriptive information on approximately 2,300 testing instruments. Detailed descriptions of each test include data on test purpose, target population, scores, administration time, publication date(s), author(s), and pricing. Indexes of test titles, publishers, acronyms, and subject classifications are provided as well as notations on hundreds of out-of-print tests.
Tests in Print X provides specific information about testing required by professionals in diverse areas such as education, psychology, counseling, management, career planning, child development, and research. It also serves as a comprehensive index to the Mental Measurements Yearbook series by directing readers to the appropriate volume for reviews of specific tests.
The Buros Center for Testing, located in the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, continues the work of improving the science and practice of testing that Oscar Krisen Buros (1906–1978) began in the 1930s.
