Contemporary Intellectual Assessment Theories, Tests, and Issues.

"In one volume, this authoritative reference presents a current, comprehensive overview of intellectual and cognitive assessment, with a focus on practical applications. Leaders in the field describe major theories of intelligence and provide the knowledge needed to use the latest measures of cognitive abilities with individuals of all ages, from toddlers to adults. Evidence-based approaches to test interpretation, and their relevance for intervention, are described. The book addresses critical issues in assessing particular populations including culturally and linguistically diverse students, gifted students, and those with learning difficulties and disabilities in today's educational settings. New to This Edition Incorporates major research advances and legislative and policy changes. Covers recent test revisions plus additional tests the NEPSY-II and the Wechsler Nonverbal Scale of Ability. Expanded coverage of specific populations chapters on autism spectrum disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, sensory and physical disabilities and traumatic brain injury, and intellectual disabilities. Chapters on neuropsychological approaches, assessment of executive functions, and multi-tiered service delivery models in schools"--Provided by publisher.

http://schema.org/description

  • "Now in a thoroughly revised and expanded second edition, this comprehensive work provides the most current information about theory and research on assessment of intellectual abilities and processes. Leading test authors, theorists, and scholars review the conceptual and research underpinnings of recent editions of intelligence tests, including the WISC-IV, KABC-II, SB5, and WJ III, and offer recommendations for interpretation. Highlights include new and fully revised chapters on assessment of special populations, including culturally and linguistically diverse individuals, preschoolers, and children with learning disabilities. Other new chapters describe cutting-edge interpretive approaches (e.g., nondiscriminatory and cross-battery methods) and current theories (e.g., CHC theory, Gardner's MI theory, Sternberg's triarchic theory of successful intelligence, Luria's theory of information processing); outline ways to link assessment to interventions; and address standards-based educational reform."
  • "In recent years, traditional theories of intelligence and measures of intellectual functioning have come under increased scrutiny by professionals seeking a broader understanding of cognitive abilities and personal competence, enhanced diagnostic and treatment utility, and a more culturally sensitive practice. Many new assessment instruments and techniques have been developed and new and revised theories of intelligence have emerged. This unique volume provides a comprehensive conceptual and practical overview of the current state of the art of the field. Bridging the gap between applied intelligence testing and the latest in cognitive science, the book covers major theories of intelligence, methods of assessing human cognitive abilities, and issues related to the validity and utility of current test batteries. Contributors, who include leading theorists researchers, and scientist-practitioners, as well as many of the test developers themselves, give special attention to ways in which emerging conceptions of intelligence diverge from traditional paradigms. Taken together, the chapters provide the knowledge needed to effectively use new batteries and to make up-to-date, empirically supported interpretations of older tests."
