The Role of Personality Assessment in the Schools: A Conversation With Dr. Raymond B. Cattell

pp. 26—35

Very few names in psychology are as closely identified with personality measurement as Raymond Cattell’s. In the course of a career which has spanned fifty years of very dramatic advances in psychological theory and psychometric technology, he has authored more than a dozen widely used tests. His contributions to the research literature have been enormous, causing at least one Annual Review Psychology author to devote an entire section of that year’s review of personality assessment to Cattell’s work. The discussion which follows took place during the summer of 1977 between Professor Cattell and Dr. Samuel E.Krug in which Cattell shared his view on school psychology and the vital role of personality assessment in education. Dr. Krugis a former student of Cattell and the author of a number of books and articles on personality assessment.
