Psychological assessments are used in the field of education to find answers for the questions raise concerning the student’s intellectual, academic, social and emotional functioning. The collection, integration, and interpretation of all information and data gathered from the assessment will enable better understanding of the student’s characteristics and capacities. More effective interventions, recommendations and referrals can then be implemented. This book offers researchers and practitioners insights on assessment concepts and practices that are in line with the demand of education in the 21st century. As the new horizon unfolded, there is a paradigm shift in assessment; moving from macro to micro level of learning, from accountability of school to supporting teaching and learning, from summative to formative and diagnostics, from assessing achievement of individuals to catering of learning needs of diverse learners. The new horizon of assessment serves as catalysis for more effective psychological assessment in educational research and practice.
