The tools used in the assessment process have changed dramatically in recent years. School and clinical psychologists need a comprehensive yet focused resource to which they can turn to learn the basics of key intelligence and achievement tests and how to use them in their assessments of children and adults. With its practical and straightforward presentation, Practitioner's Guide to Assessing Intelligence and Achievement provides that resource.
Coedited by two well-known and respected scholars and researchers, Jack Naglieri and Sam Goldstein, the content in this timely book combines traditional and new conceptualizations of intelligence as well as ways to measure achievement. Truly readable and user-friendly, this book provides professionals with a single source from which to examine ability and achievement tests along the same general criteria.
Each chapter is written by a leading scholar and test developer and is consistently structured for easy comparison of each test that is examined. Coverage includes:
The theory underlying each test
Description of each test
Tips for administering and scoring each test
Standardization, norms, and reliability of each scale
Practical guidance for the use of each test
Correspondence of each test to IDEA
A practical tool designed to aid clinical psychologists in understanding the strengths and weaknesses of the various tests presented, Practitioner's Guide to Assessing Intelligence and Achievement provides students and practitioners with the information they need for their practice and testing efforts to be consistent with recent updates in the field and how those assessment instruments relate to changes in the laws that influence test use.

New to This Edition
*Chapter on key implications of DSM-5 diagnostic criteria, plus related updates throughout the volume.
*Chapter on advances in early identification (ages 0–3).
*Chapter with in-depth case examples illustrating the evaluation decision-making process and common diagnostic challenges.
*Chapters on pseudoscience (including strategies for advising parents) and future directions in the field.
*Current assessment data, numerous new and revised measures, and cutting-edge screening approaches.
The first in-depth treatment of the theory, definition, and evaluation of this core concept, Assessing Impairment: From Theory to Practice cuts through the confusion and cross-talk. Leading scholars and clinicians offer a robust evidence base for a much-needed reconceptualization of impairment within the context of diagnosis and disability, arguing for a wide-ranging quality-of-life perspective. This contextual approach to assessment goes beyond mere symptom counting, resulting in more accurate diagnosis, targeted interventions, and improved patient functioning.
Within this concise but comprehensive volume, coverage focuses on key areas including:
Current conceptualizations from the DSM-IV and other medical models.
Methodologies for measuring symptom severity and impairment.
Social/behavioral issues, such as resilience, adaptive behaviors, and family environment.
Developmental issues across the life span.
Legal and ethical questions and civil rights issues.
Impairment and disability as they relate to trauma.
The interdisciplinary model proposed in Assessing Impairment gives clinicians vital tools for working with the unique limitations and strengths of every patient. Child, school, and educational psychologists will find it particularly useful, given the critical importance of early detection and the complexity of young people’s lives.
The Handbook of Intelligence addresses a broad range of issues relating to our cognitive and linguistic past. It is the first full-length volume to place intelligence in an evolutionary/cultural framework, tracing the development of the human mind, exploring differences between humans and other primates, and addressing human thinking and reasoning about its own intelligence and its uses. The works of pioneering thinkers – from Plato to Darwin, Binet to Piaget, Luria to Weachsler – are referenced to illustrate major events in the evolution of theories of intelligence, leading to the current era of multiple intelligences and special education programs. In addition, it examines evolutionary concepts in areas as diverse as creativity, culture, neurocognition, emotional intelligence, and assessment.
Featured topics include:The evolution of the human brain from matter to mind
Social competition and the evolution of fluid intelligence
Multiple intelligences in the new age of thinking
Intelligence as a malleable construct
From traditional IQ to second-generation intelligence tests
The evolution of intelligence, including implications for educational programming and policy.
The Handbook of Intelligence is an essential resource for researchers, graduate students, clinicians, and professionals in developmental psychology; assessment, testing and evaluation; language philosophy; personality and social psychology; sociology; and developmental biology.
