Product Details

Product Description


"Comprehensive, authoritative, and readable, a combination that is almost impossible to achieve in an introductory upwards text to a scientific and practical discipline such as employee selection. This text retains its independence throughout from any single test publisher, yet covers all the competency areas laid down in the BPS framework, and is an absolute goldmine of information on testing and selection procedures more generally. Anyone even thinking of booking onto Level A or Level B test training courses should buy this book first." Neil Anderson, PhD, Professor of Organizational Psychology, University of Amsterdam <!--end-->

"At last! A superbly practical book which takes you through the stages of psychometric testing sequentially, but also integrates theory and statistics into the story. The Smiths have provided all would-be practitioners with an indispensable tool for their learning, development, and reference." Peter Heriot, Visiting Professor, University of Surrey and Open University Business School

"This is a much needed text that provides an excellent grounding for anyone aiming to achieve any of the BPS Certificates of Competence in Occupational Testing. It also represents the ideal source of reference for those using tests in the workplace. Each chapter is written in a clear, non-threatening style that takes the pain out of understanding the use of occupational tests." Dr Caroline Limbert, University of Oxford, BPS verified assessor for Certificate of Competence in Occupational Testing
