In this textbook, Robert P. Archer and Steven R. Smith provide an overview of the most popular self-report, interview, performance-based, and behavioral personality assessment instruments.

It provides coverage of eight of the most popular assessment instruments used in the United States -- from authors key in creating, or developing the research base for, these test instruments. Each chapter explores a particular assessment instrument, from the underlying latent variable through the test development and psychometrics, to its use, limitations, and criticism. A clinical dilemma is presented for each included test, to provide students an opportunity to practice test interpretation.Clarifying the most salient issues in a clear and concise way, Personality Assessment is an integral classroom resource as well as a convenient reference for practitioners new to assessment work.Archer, Robert P. is the author of 'Personality Assessment', published 2008 under ISBN 9780805861181 and ISBN 0805861181.
