Abstract and Keywords
We concentrate on six major themes that organize both the scientific and practical knowledge regarding individual psychological assessment. After providing a definition and associated contextual background, we discuss the various organizational purposes for which individual assessments can be used, followed by a description of how assessments should be designed to satisfy those purposes. A fourth theme is devoted to the “nuts and bolts” of developing and implementing an assessment process, followed by a discussion of assessment data integration and presenting it to both the assessee and the organizational representatives who will rely upon the information. After reviewing several “special issues,” our concluding comments describe the state of the science and art, and our outlooks and recommendations for the future of individual psychological assessment.
