MEDIA REVIEWS
'Once again, Coaley provides an accessible and indispensable guide to psychological assessments for students and staff. Coaley's applied expertise in psychological assessment means that the student not only benefits from a thorough explanation of the theoretical underpinnings of psychological assessments, but also have the benefit of practical explanations of the theory. Through this text, students will gain an understanding not only of how to "do" psychological assessment, but also critical issues such as fairness and ethical testing of tests, reliability and validity and also how vital testing can be in applied settings.' -- Debbie Stevens-Gill
'This revised edition of An Introduction to Psychological Assessment and Psychometrics is timely as it addresses current issues in relation to the European Federation of Psychological Associations (EFPA) and changes to the British Psychological Society (BPS) standards for competence in test use, making it an ideal text to support training and learning. There is also important recognition of recent theory and methodological development and changes in legal requirements. The author's style of writing is friendly and fluid, neither patronising nor overly complex, presenting clear and unthreatening explanations and examples of all the key materials required to become a competent psychometric test user. Thought provoking key questions at the end of each chapter help to consolidate the learning and identify areas that require more attention.' -- Dr Caroline Limbert, Programme Director and Senior Lecturer
