Measurement for Self-Understanding and Personal Development: Proceedings of the 1973 Invitational Conference on Testing Problems (34th, New York Hilton, November 3, 1973).
Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ.
The eight papers presented at the 1973 Invitational Conference on Testing Problems were primarily concerned with proposed changes in the evaluation of psychometric testing: what its purposes are and how best to use these test results in the development of the individual and his concept of himself. The emphasis of the papers lies in a more direct involvement of the examinee with his scores and what they mean. Topics include the development of moral stages, interest tests and how they can be used in guidance, affective response tendencies and self-understanding, a cognitive style perspective on evaluation and guidance, test information in counseling, a computer based system for career decision-making, an analysis of the implications of measurement, and conflict resolution in a university setting. A description of the general orientation of the program and references for each of the papers are included. (SE)
