Considered by many to provide the most authoritative information about commercially-available English-language, standardized tests in psychology, education, and vocational aptitude. Achievement, behavior assessment, developmental, general and subject aptitude, intelligence, neuropsychological, personality, and sensory-motor tests are among the types of tests included. Each entry provides descriptive information (test name, purpose, intended population, publication dates, form, and prices) and availability information (test author, publisher, price, and scoring services). Most entries include one or more full-text reviews of the test by qualified psychologists who usually cite reliability, validity, and normative data. Additional references are included.
