Review:

"I used McIntire and Miller’s book on testing in my research course two years ago. Students loved this book for its clarity and personality. It is hard to imagine how the authors could have improved on the first edition. Nevertheless, this new edition of the Foundations of Psychological Testing is better than any of its competitors. The authors should be congratulated for making a topic, that has been formidable to students in the past, much more accessible to today’s students."

(Douglas Herrmann 2006-02-01)

"I am delighted that a new, revised edition of the text by Sandra McIntire and Leslie Miller will soon be issued. I have used the first edition of this text with positive results in my psychological tests and measures classes. The text is exemplary in its clear explanations of complex issues in testing. As well it provides coverage in areas not included in other texts, areas like survey construction and use, and it does all this in a very efficient fashion."

(Edward L. Levine 2006-02-01)
