Features of this text include case studies and assessment reports to give students opportunities for authentic practice; activities that allow students to test their knowledge and applications of learning; sections in every chapter on multicultural and social justice assessment issues; individual chapters on the most commonly used assessments; and the most up-to-date references, resources, and test reviews to keep up with changes in test revisions and the field.This book is designed to address the core curricular assessment requirements of the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP, 2016), thereby providing state-of-the-art information on assessment and tests that professional counselors need to know.
