Test use is ubiquitous in contemporary society; likewise, test misuse cuts across many fields, applications, and types of tests. Test misuse can be substantially reduced through training in test policy, selection, administration, scoring, interpretation, and reporting. Responsible Test Use: Case Studies for Assessing Human Behavior, Second Edition is an interdisciplinary reference source for promoting quality assurance in testing. It consists of 85 training cases that illustrate a variety of problems related to test use. Twenty-eight of the cases are new for this edition. Each case is drawn from real life and includes a description of the incident focus questions to encourage active involvement with issues raised by the case an analysis of the problems posed plus possible ways of better handling the situation a listing of empirically-derived dimensions of test misuse that are likely to generalize to new testing situations Cases developed for this edition represent three test settings that were not covered in the previous edition: computer and internet testing formats, forensic, and cross cultural-English language learners. In addition, revised cases cover counseling and training, education, employment, mental health, neuropsychology, and speech-language-hearing settings. This book is intended for use as a supplementary textbook in undergraduate and graduate measurement courses and for trainers of specialized assessment practitioners, such as school psychologists and educational diagnosticians. It can also serve as a valuable tool for in-service training or continuing education, for licensing exam preparation, and as a resource for other individuals committed to improving assessment practices.
