"Without assuming any prior knowledge of mathematics, nor of psychology, Modern Psychometrics 3rd Edition outlines the major issues in psychometrics and places them into context by reviewing past and current developments in intelligence research and personality theory. This will be an extraordinarily easy book to read for anyone who is interested in learning what psychometrics is about." Alberto Maydeu-Oliveras, University of Barcelona
"This text covers moral and ethical issues in psychometrics extensively. It is very readable and has extensive coverage of some topics that are only briefly mentioned in other texts." – Lauri Nummenmaa, University of Tampere
"A book that, contrary to all expectations, makes psychometrics readable and interesting. Special virtues include showing that statistical rigor cannot be detached from people's perceptions and that controversies, such as criterion versus norm based assessment or measuring traits versus the capacity to perform a role, dissolve when one designs a good test." - Professor James R. Flynn, author of What Is Intelligence?
