Issues of test bias, validity, and reliability are related specificallly to the process of test construction. This immensely useful bibliography contains 2,759 citations arranged under headings of test construction, fine arts, foreign languages, intelligence, mathematics, miscellaneous, milti-aptitude batteries, personality, reading, science, sensory motor, social studies, speech and hearing, and vocations.

Measurement of human performance and ability through formal testing reaches into nearly every area of modern life, and a great deal of research continues to be devoted to improving testing methods. While there is no scarcity of bibliographies of testing materials, a comprehensive resource on test construction and design has been lacking. This new reference is designed to fill that gap. Bringing together materials on a wide range of areas, it provides more than 2,700 classified listings on the development, design, and construction of specific tests as well a general test construction, its rationales, and the pitfalls involved.
