Braden, Jeffery P.; Kratochwill, Thomas R.
School Psychology Review, v26 n3 p475-85 1997
Describes three assumptions regarding treatment utility of assessment not supported by objective data: aptitude-treatment interactions do not provide valid basis for treatment selection; individualized assessment is better than nonindividualized assessment; and assessment improves consultation treatment. Proposes agenda to provide an objective, data-based body of research to clarify whether psychologists should retain or reject these assumptions. (Author/JDM)
