9781133492078: Student Workbook for Kaplan/Saccuzzo's Psychological Testing: Principles, Applications, and Issues, 8th

More than a traditional study guide, the Student Workbook--written by Katherine Nicolai of Rockhurst University--truly helps students understand the connections between abstract measurement concepts and the development, evaluation, selection, and use of psychological tests in the real world. Interesting hands-on exercises and assignments include case studies to critique, test profiles to interpret, and studies on the psychometric properties of tests to evaluate. Chapter outlines and practice multiple-choice quizzes are also included. A three-ring binder format allows students to keep other course notes and handouts. Students will discover that the Student Workbook will help them organize their study of Kaplan and Saccuzzo's text and excel on course exams, assignments, and projects.
