Editorial Reviews

Review

"Professor Kaufman's Intelligent Testing is an illuminating tribute to his father, Alan, whose pioneering, innovative accomplishments have placed the art and science of cognitive testing upon a solid historical, theoretical, behavioral, neuropsychological, and educational footing. The focus is upon the whole person, as affected by the complex and inevitable interplay of nature and nurture. The book is an embodiment of a highly successful tour de force culminating in the globalization of Alan's unique, masterfully accomplished, and clearly required approach to cognitive assessment."
-Dom Cicchetti, Yale University and the Imperial College of Science, Technology, and Medicine, UK


"Intelligent Testing is an extraordinary book that highlights the accomplishments and contribution of a remarkable person, Alan Kaufman. The authors of the various chapters tell important stories about how Alan Kaufman influenced both the practice of assessment and their own professional maturation and development. It also provides important insights into the practice of assessment that all clinicians can learn from. Most of all it reveals much about the consummate practitioner, scientist and person who is Alan Kaufman."
-Aurelio Prifitera, Ph.D., Group President and CEO, Clinical Assessment, Pearson


"Like Binet and Wechsler, Dr. Alan Kaufman is most certainly one of the key contributors to intelligence testing; his legacy is further reflected in the many psychologists he has mentored who continue to significantly advance the assessment of intelligence."
-Donald H. Saklofske, University of Calgary


"...Overall, the book may serve different purposes for different people. For those who were not around during the release of the book Intelligent Testing with the WISC-R (Kaufman, 1979), it may fill in a few knowledge gaps and provide some context to the current state of test interpretation. For others who have been involved in individual psychological assessment during the late 1970s through now, some of it may read like a trip down memory lane... The ideas in this book may serve as a point from which others may build, whether those ideas come directly from Professor Kaufman or from the impressive list of contributors. Readers of this book should come away with an appreciation of how Kaufman has moved the field of applied psychology forward in a constructive manner... the tribute is well deserved."
-Matthew R. Reynolds, University of Kansas, Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment

Book Description

This book is a tribute to Alan S. Kaufman, who developed a series of IQ tests with his wife, Nadeen. His tests were known for reducing ethnic differences ("the Bell Curve"), and their success led to the development of many new tests. Internationally renowned, with his tests and books translated into many languages, this book features essays that talk about how IQ tests are developed, how they have improved over the last few decades, and how IQ testing is used throughout the world.

Format: Hardcover
Intelligent Testing. Integrating Psychological Theory and Practice - A Tribute to Alan S. Kaufman by James Kaufman (2009, 252 pages) is what the Dutch - borrowing from Latin - call a Liber Amicorum, a Book of Friends, and the Germans - authentically - call eine Festschrift, a Celebration Volume. The book is all three. It is a tribute to the master rendered by his former students and younger colleagues, today well-known and influential psychologists in their own right, like Cecil Reynolds, Jack Naglieri, Dawn Flanagan and Elaine Fletcher-Janzen. These authors contribute to the book with original articles and research, or present historical overviews of assessement, Alan Kaufman's outstanding role in it, controversies and how they were dealt with. It is a book written by his friends, who, without exception, highlight the influence Alan Kaufman had on them both professionally and as humans. And, third, it is a celebration of the impact Alan Kaufman's work had and continues to have around the world, and does this exactly 30 years after the publication of his "Intelligent Testing with the WISC-R". It is a two-layered impact: first on the field of neuropsychological assessment, quantifying interpretation without loosing sight of the clinical aspects of clinical (neuro)psychology, and second, on the many children and adults tested throughout the world who profited from this professional approach.
Both between the lines and explicitly, the contributors make this book also a tribute to Nadeen, Alan Kaufman's spouse, colleague and test co-author. For those who have "Intelligent Testing with the WISC-R/ WISC-III" on their shelves and are interested in the person Alan Kaufman, the background and corollary of his work, I highly recommend this beautifully edited volume. What I missed in the book? A photo section depicting the master throughout his career.

The book gives various authors opinions on how Dr. Alan Kaufman has influenced the field of intelligence testing. I had hoped for more on the integration of theory and practice.
