This course is an introduction to psychological tests and measurements. We cover basic principles of test construction, including reliability, validity, item analysis, and development of normative data. We examine major types of tests (e.g., intelligence, personality, interests, and attitudes), as well as their application to career counseling, clinical diagnosis, employee selection, performance appraisal, and organizational assessment. PREREQ: one course in statistics.
