تست هوشمندی: دربردارندهء تئوری روانشناسی و تمرین بالینی

The field of intelligence testing has been revolutionized by Alan S. Kaufman. He developed the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised (WISC-R) with David Wechsler, and his best-selling book, Intelligent Testing with the WISC-R, introduced the phrase "intelligent testing." Kaufman, with his wife, Nadeen, then created his own series of tests: the Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children (K-ABC), the Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement (K-TEA), the Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test (K-BIT), and many others. The K-ABC, the first major intelligence test to challenge the Wechsler, helped raise the bar for future tests. This book is a celebration of his life's work, with contributions by a who's who in IQ testing, including Bruce Bracken, Dawn Flanagan, Elaine Fletcher-Janzen, Randy Kamphaus, Nancy Mather, Steve McCallum, Jack Naglieri, Tom Oakland, Cecil Reynolds, and Robert Sternberg. The book, edited by his son James, features essays expanding on his work and ideas from former students and colleagues.
Review
"Professor Kaufman's Intelligent Testing is an illuminating tribute to his father, Alan, whose pioneering, innovative accomplishments have placed the art and science of cognitive testing upon a solid historical, theoretical, behavioral, neuropsychological, and educational footing. The focus is upon the whole person, as affected by the complex and inevitable interplay of nature and nurture. The book is an embodiment of a highly successful tour de force culminating in the globalization of Alan's unique, masterfully accomplished, and clearly required approach to cognitive assessment."
-Dom Cicchetti, Yale University and the Imperial College of Science, Technology, and Medicine, UK

"Intelligent Testing is an extraordinary book that highlights the accomplishments and contribution of a remarkable person, Alan Kaufman. The authors of the various chapters tell important stories about how Alan Kaufman influenced both the practice of assessment and their own professional maturation and development. It also provides important insights into the practice of assessment that all clinicians can learn from. Most of all it reveals much about the consummate practitioner, scientist and person who is Alan Kaufman."
-Aurelio Prifitera, Ph.D., Group President and CEO, Clinical Assessment, Pearson

"Like Binet and Wechsler, Dr. Alan Kaufman is most certainly one of the key contributors to intelligence testing; his legacy is further reflected in the many psychologists he has mentored who continue to significantly advance the assessment of intelligence."
-Donald H. Saklofske, University of Calgary
