A compendium of neuropsychological tests: administration, norms, and commentary
This book provides thorough descriptions of a wide range of neuropsychological tests, including the Stanford-Binet, MMPI, Purdue Pegboard and PASAT, that are commonly used to assess general intellectual ability, scholastic achievement, attention and memory, language, visual, auditory, and tactile ability, motor skill and personality. Means of administration, approximate time for administration, scoring procedures, sample score sheets, normative data, and information on reliability and validity are presented. The authors also discuss when a given test may be of particular use and emphasize clinically useful means for making inferences about the functional integrity of brain regions. A very practical resource, the book will help clinicians evaluate and treat neuropsychological disorders. It will also alert clinicians and researchers to the psychometric properties of their instruments.
