"I would describe this text as clearly written with an appropriate amount of coverage and detail for a sophomore or junior level class. The number of tests discussed is considerable, but appropriate. The text contains numerous examples that illustrate relevant, and sometimes difficult, topics very nicely. The fundamental issues of reliability and validity are discussed in a somewhat rudimentary way and without much connection to classical measurement theory, but that is probably wise for a course that does not require much statistical knowledge on the part of the students taking the class. Overall, this is a well-written, solid textbook that I would highly recommend."
