Tests and Measurements for Vocational Evaluators. April 1973.
Botterbusch, Karl F.
The purpose of the document is to help fill the gap between the use of psychological tests by evaluators and evaluators' feelings about their competence in using these devices. The first section contains descriptions of 33 tests and instruments presently used in evaluation facilities serving a wide variety of clients. These tests are divided according to the following areas: achievement batteries and reading tests (six tests), character and personality (four tests), intelligence (three tests), vocations--clerical (four tests), vocations--interests (six tests), vocations--manual dexterity (four tests), and vocations--mechanical ability (three tests). The tests are described with respect to 10 categories: purpose, final score, description, materials required, appropriate groups, technical consideration, American Psychological Association (APA) level, sources of information, availability, and comments. The four-page second section of the document provides the evaluator with a basic list of reference materials about testing and statistics. A list of test publishers is included. (Author/EC)
