The Psychological Testing Enterprise: An Introduction

Front Cover
Brooks/Cole Publishing Company, 1995 - Psychology - 858 pages
Providing a perspective for teaching psychological testing, this book tells the story of testing within a chronological framework. Based on an integrated social and psychological interpretation of testing as an important aspect of North American society, this approach balances coverage between the history and the essentials of psychological testing and allows for discussion of the relationship between society and testing throughout. Rogers presents the ideas of the testing field in the contexts in which they emerged and places testing squarely within ongoing debates and controversies in the discipline of psychology.
