Testing Responsibility - Viewpoint of a Practitioner

pp. 12—14

Testing is traditionally associated with the psychologist. In the process of evaluating a particular individual for traits of intelligence, personality uniqueness, and levels of achievement, the technique of testing is usually employed. In the educational setting it is the psychologist who is generally called upon by teachers, administrators, and parents to provide needed information about abilities, motivation, and learning styles of children. The educational purposes to be served relate to the development of more adequate instructional objectives in the learning situation which take into consideration the indicated strengths and weaknesses of pupils as individuals within the group setting.
