    Wiley Principles of Assessment and Outcome Measurement for Allied Health Professionals Practice Research and Development by Alison J. Laver-fawcett, Diane L. Cox

    Principles of Assessment and Outcome Measurement for Allied Health Professionals
    The revised and updated second edition of Principles of Assessment and Outcome Measurement for Allied Health Professionals offers an authoritative guide for allied health professionals and students. The authors, noted experts on the topic, explore the assessment process that encompasses the data collection methods, the evaluation process that determines the effectiveness of an intervention, and standardised and systematic outcome measurement procedures.

    The book discusses in detail the various methods of data collection (observation, interview, standardised testing) and the types of sources (self-report, proxy, observational) for collecting information. The main purposes of assessment (descriptive, evaluative, predictive, discriminative) are also presented. The book addresses the topics of standardization, levels of measurement, reliability, validity, and clinical usefulness. The text provides the information needed to select and perform assessment and outcomes measurement to inform goal setting, evaluate outcomes, and ensure that interventions are effective, efficient, and economical in order to provide quality services to clients and their carers. This important book:

    Covers information on assessment and measurement in practice, research, and service evaluation and improvement
    Explores how to develop and evaluate assessments and outcome measures
    Offers an international perspective
    Discusses the criteria for choosing a particular assessment approach
    Informs the critical appraisal of the evidence underpinning standardised assessments and measures, and selecting the best tools for practice or research
    Includes updated and additional case studies
    Provides worksheets and additional illustrations to enhance understanding
    Written for allied health students and professionals, Principles of Assessment and Outcome Measurement for Allied Health Professionals is the essential guide to assessing, measuring, and evaluating the impact and outcome of clinical practice and interventions.
