This book is a duology consisting of Child and Adolescent Development (2nd ed.) and Adult Development and Ageing (2nd ed).
Owing to the topics covered, there is some overlapping, but this is relatively minimal.
Personology - From individual to ecosystem fifth edition explains the widest spectrum of personality theories and approaches in the clearest way possible. Traditional approaches to personality theories and cutting-edge theories are comprehensively covered. The methodological approach stresses the practical implications of the theories and perspectives for everyday living. Attention is given to research, particularly to relevant South African research, and emphasis is placed on the historical development of the broad approaches and the way in which the theories within an approach are linked. This fifth edition of Personology - From individual to ecosystem includes a wealth of enrichment sections with video URLs, practical activities, examples and review questions. Digital support material for this fifth edition of Personology - From individual to ecosystem provides students with additional summaries, examples, enrichment sections and practice questions and answers, including research and application questions with guidelines.
This book provides an overview of the research related to psychological assessment across South Africa. The thirty-six chapters provide a combination of psychometric theory and practical assessment applications in order to combine the currently disparate research that has been conducted locally in this field. Existing South African texts on psychological assessment are predominantly academic textbooks that explain psychometric theory and provide brief descriptions of a few testing instruments. Psychological Assessment in South Africa provides in-depth coverage of a range of areas within the broad field of psychological assessment, including research conducted with various psychological instruments. The chapters critically interrogate the current Eurocentric and Western cultural hegemonic practices that dominate the field of psychological assessment. The book therefore has the potential to function both as an academic text for graduate students, as well as a specialist resource for professionals, including psychologists, psychometrists, remedial teachers and human resource practitioners.
Introduction to Psychological Assessment in the South African Context 5e is an introductory text on measuring and assessing human behaviour within a complex multicultural environment. It offers a practical guide to the development of culturally appropriate measures and the application of assessment measures, as well as the interpretation and reporting of results. The book provides advice with regard to assessing young children and disabled individuals and also discusses the various contexts in which psychological measures are used, including education, counselling, the psycho-legal domain, and research. The book features critical-thinking exercises that present students with typical assessment scenarios to develop their reasoning skills. Real-life South African examples and case studies illustrate the theory, and allow students to apply psychological assessment principles in practice.
In Psychometrics: An Introduction, R. Michael Furr centres his presentation of material around a conceptual understanding of psychometric issues, such as validity and reliability, and on purpose rather than procedure, the "why" rather than the "how to." By emphasizing concepts over mathematical proofs and by focusing on practical significance, this book assists students in appreciating not just how measurement problems can be addressed, but why it is important to address them. Key features: Presents information in a clear, easy-to-read, conversational style Highlights practical applications Offers an up-to-date treatment of topics in psychometrics Introduces statistical procedures in the context of their use rather than in a separate chapter Online Resources Free PowerPoint (R) slides for instructors are available with this text.

Shaw carries forward Neil's signature humorous, personable, and informative approach. The text guides students through various statistical procedures, beginning with descriptive statistics, correlation, and graphical representation of data, and ending with inferential techniques and analysis of variance. Features and benefits: Lots of support for getting started with R: Included are two introductory chapters on R and on R Studio, plus an appendix on other R packages and resource sites. Step-by-step demonstrations of each statistical procedure in R: The authors show how to import the dataset, enter the syntax to run the test, and understand the output. Additional resources make it easy to transition to this text, and to R: Code and datasets are available on an accompanying website, which also includes screencast R tutorial videos for students, and PowerPoint slides and additional test questions for instructors.

A SPECTATOR BOOK OF THE YEAR 'History that reads like biography that reads like a novel - a fluid narrative that defies expectations and plays against type' New York Times 'Brilliant and savage' Philip Hensher An unprecedented history of the personality test conceived a century ago by a mother and her daughter - fiction writers with no formal training in psychology - and how it insinuated itself into our boardrooms, classrooms, and beyond. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is the most popular personality test in the world. It has been harnessed by Fortune 100 companies, universities, hospitals, churches, and the military. Its language - of extraversion vs. introversion, thinking vs. feeling - has inspired online dating platforms and Buzzfeed quizzes alike. And yet despite the test's widespread adoption, experts in the field of psychometric testing, a $500 million industry, struggle to account for its success - no less validate its results. How did the Myers-Briggs insinuate itself into our jobs, our relationships, our internet, our lives? First conceived in the 1920s by the mother-daughter team of Katherine Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers, a pair of aspiring novelists and devoted homemakers, the Myers-Briggs was designed to bring the gospel of Carl Jung to the masses. But it would take on a life of its own, reaching from the smoke-filled boardrooms of mid-century New York to Berkeley, California, where it was honed against some of the 20th century's greatest creative minds. It would travel across the world to London, Zurich, Cape Town, Melbourne, and Tokyo; to elementary schools, nunneries, wellness retreats, and the closed-door corporate training sessions of today. Drawing from original reporting and never-before-published documents, What's Your Type? examines nothing less than the definition of the self - our attempts to grasp, categorise and quantify our personalities. Surprising and absorbing, the book, like the test at its heart, considers the timeless question: What makes you you?
Assessment is an important part of any psychologist's role and the outcome can have consequences, positive and negative, for the person being assessed. The principles and practice of psychological assessment is a guide to drawing up, administering and interpreting assessment procedures, and judging whether the techniques used are theoretically and procedurally sound. It also takes a special look at assessment from an organisational perspective, because although many of the technical and scientific issues with respect to psychological assessment are common to all areas of applied psychology, there are numerous issues and applications that are unique to the organisational context. The principles and practice of psychological assessment is more of a "how to" than a critical text, but includes some background information and in-depth theorising for more problematic issues. A glossary of terms and a unique cognitive map of psychological tests are provided. Changes in this second edition include two new chapters, one on Assessing integrity (which previously formed part of the chapter on personality) and a new chapter on Assessment in cross-cultural contexts, where the theoretical and practical problems associated with assessing people in their non-native language are described and ways of addressing these are put forward. Throughout the text, references and examples have been updated and issues raised in recent texts have been addressed. Contents include the following: Properties of a good measuring technique; ways of categorising the observation process; techniques used in measurement; errors inherent in the assessment process; combining and interpreting results; fairness, bias and discrimination; assessing cross-culturally; designing and locating appropriate assessment centre exercises; assessing integrity. The principles and practice of psychological assessment is aimed at undergraduate and honours students of psychology and industrial psychology, as well as at practitioners.
