Product Description This leading practitioner reference and text--now in a revised and expanded fourth edition--provides the knowledge needed to use state-of-the-art cognitive tests with individuals of all ages, from preschoolers to adults. The volume examines major theories and tests of intelligence (in chapters written by the theorists and test developers themselves) and presents research-based approaches to test interpretation. Contributors address critical issues in evaluating culturally and linguistically diverse students, gifted students, and those with intellectual disability, sensory–motor impairments, traumatic brain injuries, and learning difficulties and disabilities. The fourth edition highlights the use of cognitive test results in planning school-based interventions.

This edition reflects the ever-increasing translation of neuroscience into new and revised theories and measures, and emphasizes new applied aspects of intellectual assessment. Clinicians will appreciate this outstanding reference work written and edited by the field's best experts."--Elaine Fletcher-Janzen, EdD, NCSP, ABPdN, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology "This revised and expanded fourth edition brings together dozens of the most well-known theorists and test authors in the field of intellectual assessment to dig deep into contemporary and ever-evolving theories of human cognition and neuropsychology. Not only are the latest cognitive, achievement, and neuropsychological tests reviewed in thorough detail, but ways to link assessment to intervention are outlined. Assessment applications for specific populations are highlighted in detail. Trainers in the applied psychological professions will likely find this a reliable core text. As an applied practitioner, I suspect this volume will become a constantly used and worn reference for report writing that will stay on my desk, not my bookshelf."--John M. Garruto, DEd, NCSP, school psychologist, Oswego City School District, New York "This is the volume on cognitive assessment. The fourth edition wonderfully captures the field's changing legislative policies, diagnostic systems, testing standards, research, theories, and controversies. A who's who of scholars eloquently provide highly practical, scientifically based information. The volume describes the latest tests as well as state-of-the-art approaches to score interpretation, decision making and intervention planning, including applications for multi-tiered systems of support in schools. This is a 'must-read' text for students of cognitive assessment, theories of intelligence, and applications of measurement, as well as practicing school, educational, and clinical psychologists and educators. Highly recommended!"--Linda A. Reddy, PhD, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey "Flanagan and McDonough have assembled an impressive, comprehensive volume. The book includes the major scholars within the field across a continuum of expertise. It will no doubt serve as an excellent resource for those who want to assess intelligence in clinical or educational settings or analyze the psychometric properties of commonly used measures. A 'go-
