Overview

- Your students will get valuable practice in interpreting actual excerpts from published test manuals.

- Each of the 39 exercises begins with a guideline that helps students review the measurement concepts they will need in order to complete the exercise.

- Background notes on each exercise describe the purpose of the test from which the excerpt was drawn.

- Students answer questions that require them to locate and interpret important points in the excerpt.

- The excerpts are largely unabridged so that students practice interpreting material as it is actually presented by test makers.

- The skills they learn with this book can be easily transferred to other test manuals they may be using in the future.
