The collection of papers presented in this monograph provides an update on developments in assessment for counselors, practitioners, and researchers in all types of educational settings. The papers are grouped into five sections. Section 1, on emerging issues, includes topics on testing theories presently used, and some thoughts for the future. Section 2 concerns issues of counselor education in higher education. Section 3 discusses educational assessment in elementary and secondary schools, and the role of the counselor in school guidance. Section 4 considers testing modifications and accommodations that are in practice with the special needs population. Section 5 reviews special assessment topics. Examples of these topics include the rights of the test takers; communicating test results; writing multiple choice tests; and use of specific types of tests. Also included are reprints of 33 ERIC/CASS Digests on Assessment in Counseling and Therapy produced for the Assessment '95 ERIC/CASS and the Association for Assessment in Counseling national conference. With the publication of this monograph, it is hoped that a wide range of practitioners and researchers will have access to current information that is not readily available to them.
