Primarily intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students of psychology, the book aims to provide a succinct yet reasonably compre-hensive account of psychological measurement techniques (psychometry) in a single volume.

Written in a lucid style with the author’s rich teaching experience, the book focuses on the technique of development and use of psychological tests and scales. It also describes essential features and steps to be followed in constructing a psychological test.

The book, divided into three parts, covers psychophysical methods, psychological scaling and test methods, and some elementary but essential statistical concepts used in the measurement and interpretation of psychological test data.

Besides psychology students, the book will also be useful for undergraduate and postgraduate students of education, and professionals in the field of psychology and education.
