Test Reviewing: Problems and Prospects.
Weiss, David J.
The Inter-Association Council on Test Reviewing (IACTR) was established in 1967 as an outcome of a committee established two years earlier by the Division of Evaluation and Measurement of the American Psychological Association. Its purpose is to facilitate the dissemination of information on, and reviews of, tests and other measurement instruments. To this end, IACTR surveyed various test users and journal editors to ascertain their evaluation of the nature and availability of existing test reviews, and of current reviewing procedures. An analysis of the resulting data is presented in a comprehensive set of tables. In general, it was concluded that there is a need for more and improved test reviews that are comparative, comprehensive, integrative, and topical in nature, and designed for specific audiences. In addition, the dissemination procedures need to be improved. Recommendations for the improvement of the reviewing and dissemination processes are included. (Author/PR)
