The Second Edition of Foundations of Psychological Testing: A Practical Approach is a scholarly, yet pragmatic and easy to understand text for undergraduate students new to the field of psychological testing. Using an engaging, conversational format, authors Sandra A. McIntire and Leslie A. Miller aim to prepare students to be informed consumers―as test users or test takers―not to teach students to administer or interpret individual psychological tests.

About the Author:

Sandra A.McIntire, Ph.D., received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in psychology and her doctor of philosophy degree in industrial/organizational psychology from the University of South Florida. She began her career in the human resources department of the city of Clearwater, Florida, and moved into consulting with Wilson Learning Corporation (WLC) as a senior project manager.

In 1991, she accepted a tenure track professorship in the department of psychology at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. In addition to teaching social science statistics, research methods, and tests and measurements, she served as director of the psychology program for nontraditional students in Rollins’s Hamilton Holt School. She has collaborated on three books: The Job Analysis Kit, Organization Development: Strategies for a Changing Environment, and Foundations of Psychological Testing (first and second editions). In addition, she has served as a book reviewer for Personnel Psychology. She has collaborated on peer-reviewed research and made numerous presentations to national organizations such as the American Society for Training and Development, the American Psychological Association, and the Southeastern Conference on Teaching of Psychology. Dr. McIntire is now retired from Rollins College.

Review:

"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 "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
