"James Boyle and Stephen Fisher have done an excellent job inproviding a single text for those seeking the BPS's Certificate ofCompetence in Educational Testing (Level A). In addition tocovering the knowledge requirements for the qualification, the bookalso reprints the full BPS information pack relating to thequalification (Appendix 1) and includes information about howcompetence is assessed (Appendix 2). These are very usefuladditions for those undergoing training as they provide them with aclear view of what they will be expected to know and do if they areto be regarded as competent and how that knowledge and skills willbe assessed . The book contains a number of other usefulappendices. In short, this provides not only an accessible andcomprehensive source text for the Certificate, but also a usefulreference set of materials. "

"This book fills a major gap for those wishing easy access toinformation required by the BPS's CCET (Certificate of Competencein Educational Testing) Level A, or those simply wishing to updatetheir knowledge. The emphasis on qualitative and ethical issues (aswell as quantitative scores) are strong points. This book is athorough, valuable and accessible reference for all those involvedin educational testing."

concise, offering just what those who use tests in educationalsettings

need to understand ... Boyle and Fisher clearly took

the time to plan well, and they included just what is necessaryto

adequately understand, select, administer, and interpret testsfor use in
