Essentials of Individual Achievement Assessment by Douglas K. Smith
Book DescriptionQuickly acquire the knowledge and skills you need to confidently administer, score, and interpret individual achievement tests. "Essentials of Individual Achievement Assessment" covers the achievement tests used in educational planning, transitional programming for students with disabilities, and career/vocational planning - including the major individually administered tests such as the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test (WIAT-II), Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement (K-TEA), Peabody Individual Achievement Test-Revised (PIAT-R), and the Wide Range Achievement Test-3 (WRAT3(TM)). To use these tests properly, professionals need an authoritative source of advice and guidance on how to administer, score, and interpret them. Written by school psychologist Douglas K. Smith, "Essentials of Individual Achievement Assessment" is that source. Like all the volumes in the "Essentials of Psychological Assessment" series, this book is designed to help busy mental health professionals quickly acquire the knowledge and skills they need to make optimal use of major psychological assessment instruments. Each concise chapter features numerous callout boxes highlighting key concepts, bulleted points, and extensive illustrative material, as well as test questions that help you gauge and reinforce your grasp of the information covered. "Essentials of Individual Achievement Assessment" provides step-by-step guidance on test administration, scoring, and interpretation. As well, the author provides his expert assessment of the tests' relative strengths and weaknesses, valuable advice on their clinical applications, and several illuminating case reports. The other titles in the "Essentials of Psychological Assessment" series are: Essentials of WJ IIITM Tests of Achievement Assessment; Essentials of WJ IIITM Cognitive Abilities Assessment; Essentials of Career Interest Assessment; Essentials of WISC-III and WPPSI-R Assessment; Essentials of Cross-Battery Assessment; Essentials of Nonverbal Assessment; Essentials of Cognitive Assessment with KAIT and Other Kaufman Measures; and, Essentials of NEPSY Assessment.
