Designed to complement the Mental Measurements Yearbooks, Tests in Print fills a pressing need for a comprehensive bibliography of all commercially available English language tests in print. Although these volumes are useful in and of themselves, their maximum usefulness requires the availability and use of the Mental Measurements Yearbooks.

Tests in Print VIII contains descriptive information on approximately 3,000 testing instruments. Detailed descriptions of each test include specific data on its purpose, target population, scoring, and pricing. Indexes of test titles, publishers, acronyms, and subject classifications are provided as well as notations on out-of-print tests. Tests in Print VIII provides the specific information about testing required by professionals in diverse areas such as education, psychology, counseling, management, personnel, health care, career planning, sociology, child development, social science, and research. It also serves as a comprehensive index to the Mental Measurements Yearbooks series by directing readers to the appropriate volume for reviews of specific tests.

This book is written for busy people who need to understand the information that is flooding them and find ways to interpret it. You may be a business executive, a medical doctor, a stay-at-home mother or father wanting to understand the Gallup poll results in the daily newspaper, or a student studying nursing, counseling, psychology, sociology, or even mathematics. Yet you need to quickly be brought into the world of research and data analysis. It does not require that you dedicate a year of your life to take a course in social-science research and quantitative data analysis. In fact, this book will not have formulas or require you to calculate mathematical functions. But you do need to have the dedication to try to understand what might be considered another language. You can do it at a pace that suits your lifestyle. You might want to take a look at the index at the end of the book to see if there are any terms you've been interested in or wondered about. It is very nontraditional in that its focus is on the concepts behind these processes rather than asking you to learn formulas and how to calculate data. If you have a desire to learn more about what is going on, there are many excellent texts in the references.

Feedback is a rare commodity in organizational life, but it is key to managerial effectiveness. One increasingly popular vehicle for getting feedback from one's boss, peers, and subordinates is the multiple-perspective, or 360-degree, feedback instrument. Use of such an instrument can enhance self-confidence by highlighting individual strengths and can facilitate greater self-awareness by pointing out areas in need of further development. Because of the availability of so many feedback instruments, finding the best instruments for an organization's needs is difficult. This book presents a step-by-step process that shows how to evaluate multiple-feedback instruments intended for management development. The steps take you through such issues as instrument development, validity and reliability, feedback display, scoring strategies, and cost.
