The goal of this book is to sharpen the skill, sophistication, and intuition of the reader in the interpretation of mental test data, and in the construction and use of mental tests both as instruments of psychological theory and as tools in the practical problems of selection, evaluation, and guidance.

Understanding concepts such as reliability, validity, item analysis, and test construction requires careful study and basic knowledge of a. psychology. b. the history of testing. c. test administration. d. statistics. This book is an EXCELLENT graduate-level treatment of measurement and test theory. Crocker and Algina have a very readable style that makes test theory and the accompany statistics nonthreatening.

We seek to do this by. Test construction is the set of activities involved in developing and evaluating a test of some psychological function. The steps include specifying the construct of interest, deciding the test’s function (diagnosis, description of skill level, prediction of recovery), choosing a method (performance, behavioral observation, self-report), designing item content, evaluating the reliability and.

Late assignments will be reduced by one-letter grade for each day late (e.g., a maximum grade of "C" will be given to an exceptional draft test submitted two days late).

The task is important because test items are the foundation of written tests of mental attributes, and the ideas they express must be articulated precisely and succinctly.

Being able to draw valid and reliable inferences from a test’s scores rests in great measure upon attention to the construction of test by: 2.
