WISC V Assessment and Interpretation Excerpt :

The Wechsler Intelligence Scale is the most widely used intelligence test for children worldwide. WISC-V introduces new subtests, composite scores, process scores, error scores, and scaled scores as a more complex and accurate means of assessing cognitive abilities. WISC-V Assessment and Interpretation provides practical information for clinicians on selection of subtest measures, administration, and interpretation. New subtests are described along with tips for accurate administration and scoring. Full Scale IQ is identified as important for predicting relevant behaviors, and primary index scores for characterizing the child’s strengths and weaknesses. Classroom indicators of low scores on each of these abilities are identified, with suggested interventions, accommodations, and instructional strategies for low scorers. Coverage includes ethnic differences for the Full Scale IQ and each primary index score, along with evidence of the profound influence of parental attitudes and expectations. Several other societal and contextual factors relevant to understanding racial/ethnic differences are presented. Two chapters review use of the WISC-V for identifying learning disabilities, testing of individuals with dyslexia, and best-practice recommendations to ensure accurate diagnosis and intervention. Concluding chapters describe advances in the Q-interactive system platform allowing administration of the WISC-V on iPads and other tablets and how clinicians can tailor assessment using select WISC-V subtests and features. Authored by the creators of the WISC-V Describes the new subtests, revised test structure, and test extensions Advises clinicians on test selection and custom tailoring of assessment measures Provides best practice recommendations for accurate administration and scoring Addresses electronic administration via tablets and comparison to print scores Reviews social/contextual factors for understanding racial/ethnic differences Translates scores to predict b

Conducting Psychological Assessment Excerpt :

Praise for CONDUCTING PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT "This new addition of Wright's useful text is a tour de force. No one else writes more clearly, practically, and helpfully than Wright about psychological assessment—especially about the complex process of case conceptualization. This book should be required reading in every graduate course on psychological assessment." —Stephen E. Finn, PhD, Founder, Center for Therapeutic Assessment "A. Jordan Wright's Conducting Psychological Assessment is a comprehensive step-by-step guide to every aspect of psychological testing and assessment. Blending clinical wisdom with rigorous empirical evidence, the author guides readers though every phase of the assessment process, from selecting appropriate measures and collecting test data through writing assessment reports and providing feedback to clients. Experienced clinicians, early career psychologists, and students will all benefit from this important book; it should be on every clinician's bookshelf." —Robert F. Bornstein, PhD, Derner School of Psychology, Adelphi University "Conducting Psychological Assessment (2nd ed) provides a clear, concise, practical guide to essential aspects of clinical assessment. Dr. Wright presents scholarly research, draws on extensive clinical experience, and illustrates his guidelines with rich case examples. Much of this information is typically not included in other assessment books, such as how to select tests, strategies to integrate contradictory data, and how to work with clients who disagree with assessment results. Accordingly, I recommend this to all health professionals involved with clinical assessment." —Gary Groth-Marnat, PhD, ABPP, ABAP
