Abstract: This publication is designed to be primarily the manual for the BPS's Certificate of Competence in Educational Testing (Level A) and also contains the full information pack regarding the certificate as an appendix. However, the publication has a wider remit than this as it proves an overview of educational testing that is well researched, evidenced, and useful for students, practitioners and academics of educational psychology. Boyle and Fisher's book contains chapters that detail (always with very accessible worked examples) the systematic processes involved in educational testing. For example, the reader is taken from 'Defining the Assessment Needs' through, 'The Importance of Reliability and Validity', to 'Making Appropriate Use of Test Results...'.
