"This is an essential reference tool for professionals involved in the measurement of human performance and abilities through construction of formally designed instruments. O'Brien . . . has compiled the bibliography to emphasize test construction and item construction as they affect the various disciplines. Issues of test bias, validity, and reliability are related specificallly to the process of test construction. This immensely useful bibliography contains 2,759 citations arranged under headings of test construction, fine arts, foreign languages, intelligence, mathematics, miscellaneous, milti-aptitude batteries, personality, reading, science, sensory motor, social studies, speech and hearing, and vocations."

Editorial Reviews

?O'Brien's unique bibliography provides 2,759 unannotated references on test design and construction. Excluded are questionnaires; surveys; and test bias, reliability, and validity. Citations to books, dissertations, ERIC documents, and journal articles were selected from such sources as Education Index, Psychological Abstracts, and ERIC indexes. Omission elsewhere, historical research value, and need for additional information on a subject were the criteria for inclusion. Citations range from the early 20th century through 1983; an addendum updates coverage through 1986. References on how to design tests, test construction rationale, and possible pitfalls are listed. There is information on specific tests, as well as general test data. The entries are arranged alphabetically and are numbered. A comprehensive test chapter precedes those that treat special test types (e.g. intelligence, reading, and sensory-motor). There are author and subject indexes, the latter including test titles.?-Choice
