Hood and Johnson explain how to choose and administer testing instruments, conduct assessments, and interpret and communicate test results. More than 100 instruments—used with diverse populations in schools, university counseling centers, government, mental health clinics, and private practice—to assess intelligence, academic aptitude, career development, personal values measurement, interpersonal relationships, mental health, and ethnic minority populations are described.
This edition contains information on the latest editions of existing instruments, including revised versions of the Stanford-Binet test, the Strong Interest Inventory, the Work Values Inventory, the California Psychological Inventory, and the SAT, as well as changes in school achievement tests required by the No Child Left Behind Act. New tests such as the Kuder Skills Assessment, Expanded Skills Confidence Inventory, Career Futures Inventory, the Schwartz Value Survey, and the Restructured Clinical Scales of the MMPI-2 are also highlighted. Clear and concise, Assessment in Counseling provides an excellent framework for assessment courses and is a handy reference for practitioners.
