This is a comprehensive, easy-to-understand guide that takes you on a journey into the world of educational and psychological testing. Standardized tests are used more today than at any other time in history, and they are increasingly used to make important decisions about our children. That alone is reason enough to make understanding tests a top priority for all parents and teachers. You’ll learn how to understand the most common types of test scores, just how important IQ is, whether intelligence can be boosted, why important decisions should never be based on a single test, why we place so much faith in numbers, how personality tests are used, what you can do to help your child do better on tests, and so much more.
