Abstract

The status of psychological tests is reviewed both in terms of the theoretical disputes about their value and in terms of the previous research regarding their use and importance. The results of several prior studies are discussed in light of their implications for professional psychology and from a more accurate viewpoint. Theoretically unbiased, empirical evaluations of psychodiagnostic procedures are seen as essential to the correct delineation of the utility and validity of psychological tests in clinical practice.
