Description - Adapting Educational and Psychological Tests for Cross-Cultural Assessment by Ronald K. Hambleton

For a significant portion of the 20th century until quite recently, the major assessment instruments that have been used worldwide were originally developed in the United States, Great Britain, and France. Over the years, many of these instruments have been borrowed and adopted trans culturally without the benefit of proper adaptation procedures and methodologies. Most often, the medium of transfer from one culture to another has been simply translation and back-translation, and in some cases, re-norming and re-standardization. Relatively few instruments have been truly adapted for application in other languages and cultures. Adapting Educational and Psychological Tests for Cross-Cultural Assessment critically examines the do's and don'ts in adapting tests for cross-cultural assessment and research, as well as the major theoretical and methodological issues in the adaptation of educational and psychological tests. The book focuses on the adaptation of ability and achievement tests for cross-cultural assessment in industrial and organizational settings for personnel selection as well as employee placement and promotion. In addition, it examines and evaluates adapting test instrument
