The Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing - Because tests are important components of accountability systems, it is necessary to evaluate their qualities, particularly in terms of whether they are appropriate for the ways test results are used. Sound and ethical use of tests requires all participants to possess the knowledge, skills and abilities relevant to their role in the process. This research-oriented book of testing standards provides suggestions and guidelines for evaluating the quality of testing practices by addressing test development processes, uses and applications. Copies of this book may be ordered for $31.95 by calling 800.628.4094 or through the APA site.
