Review:

"Truly an exceptional contribution. This volume should be a required text for all students of intellectual assessment. It provides comprehensive coverage of all of the major theories and tests in the area of intellectual assessment, along with wonderfully detailed chapters on such issues as interpretation, validity, and the role of intellectual assessment in the context of standards-based educational reforms. Contributors have been selected from the best and most highly respected scholars in the area of intelligence and cognition, and their well-written chapters seamlessly integrate theory and practice. If I were to purchase only one professional book for my library this year, it would be this essential work."--George W. Hynd, EdD, School of Education, Purdue University

"I have used the first edition of Contemporary Intellectual Assessment for years, and have looked forward with anticipation to this revision. The changes in the field of intellectual assessment since the advent of Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) theory have been rapid and profound, and an up-to-date guidebook is a must. This book will be invaluable for anyone teaching intellectual assessment at the graduate level, and will also be a useful overview for practitioners who completed their training before the recent revolutionary changes in intellectual assessment. For school practitioners, the chapter outlining a model of nondiscriminatory assessment for culturally and linguistically diverse students, and the one linking cognitive assessment to interventions, will be particularly valuable."--Catherine A. Fiorello, PhD, School Psychology Program, Temple University

"With new and thoroughly revised chapters that address issues like LD identification and profile analysis, and populations like preschoolers, the gifted, and the culturally and linguistically diverse, the second edition of Contemporary Intellectual Assessment is a significant improvement over the already outstanding first edition. The contributing authors are leading experts in the field. This research-based but practical text will be useful to practitioners and trainers alike, and is destined to become the gold standard text for courses in intellectual assessment."--Edward M. Levinson, EdD, Department of Educational and School Psychology, Indiana University of Pennsylvania

"In the past decade, knowledge about intelligence and its assessment has moved at a rapid pace. Older theories are being reexamined with modern methods in cognitive psychology, neural science, and statistics, and new theories are vying to take their place. This excellent second edition provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview of the theory and practice of intellectual assessment--past, present, and future. The chapters, written by many of the leading researchers in the field, cover a wide range of important topics, including the history of tests and their interpretation, the structure of human cognitive abilities, contemporary theory, new and emerging tests, current issues, and future directions. This book is 'must' reading for anyone interested in intelligence and its assessment. It will be an invaluable resource for scholars, practitioners, and students new to the field."--John H. Kranzler, PhD, College of Education, University of Florida
