Quickly acquire the knowledge and skills you need to confidently administer, score, and interpret the SB5

The fifth edition of the Stanford–Binet Intelligence Scales includes enhanced features, new norms, and improved procedures. These improvements make the test easier to administer and score, as well as a better indicator for special–needs clients such as preschool children, individuals with mental retardation, elderly clients with memory difficulties, individuals with intellectual giftedness, and many others. A wide–ranging, individually administered test battery, the updated Stanford–Binet remains one of the most popular intelligence assessment instruments currently in use.

Essentials of Stanford–Binet Intelligence Scales (SB5) Assessment provides comprehensive instructions on optimal use of the Stanford–Binet, including helpful administration, scoring, and interpretation guidelines. Cowritten by the author of the SB5, this handy resource covers the test’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as important clinical applications of its use. In addition, seven case reports illustrate real–world scenarios for testing different clients in various settings.

Like all the volumes in the Essentials of Psychological Assessment series, this book is designed to help busy mental health professionals and educational–assessment specialists quickly acquire the knowledge and skills they need to make optimal use of a major psychological assessment instrument. Each concise chapter features numerous callout boxes highlighting key concepts, bulleted points, and extensive illustrative material, as well as test questions that help you gauge and reinforce your understanding of the information covered.
