Summary The casebook was developed to extend the application of principles of proper test interpretation and use learned in the classroom to the real world. The goal . . . was to provide a collection of [78] case studies based on actual incidents of proper and improper test use that could be used to supplement the basic textbooks used in testing and assessment courses. . . . Its organization facilitates its use in both traditional academic settings as well as in training programs, workshops on test interpretation and use, and in various types of continuing education courses. The casebook will also help individuals engaged in self-study improve their use and interpretation of tests. Practitioners will find the various case studies of value for reviewing basic principles of test use as well as extending their understanding of testing in applied settings. /// The casebook's major emphasis is on the application of basic principles of sound test selection, use, and interpretation across seven settings or areas of application within which tests are used: Counseling/Training, Education, Employment, General, Mental Health, Neuropsychology, and Speech-Language-Hearing.
