Attributes and Evaluation of Discussion Contributions.

Your first assignment, Review and Selection of a Standardized Test, is due by the end of this unit. This assignment includes researching three different standardized tests in a variety of resources, which include Mental Measurements Yearbook from Buros (available in the Capella Library), test publisher Web sites, and peer-reviewed journals.
For this discussion, identify the three standardized tests that you are in the process of researching. The Unit 2 Discussion 2 and Unit 2 Assignment BOTH require that you utilize the Lists of Tests by Type, which is provided in the Unit 2 Readings. In your post:

Include a short description of each test and your initial findings from the Mental Measurements Yearbook. You do not need to include any data of information from the journals or publisher Web sites for this discussion. This is a high-level overview of the three tests and discoveries from reading the reviews. Include any difficulties you may be experiencing with searching for information either in Mental Measurements Yearbook from Buros, publisher Web sites, or peer-reviewed journal articles.
Conclude your discussion with an evaluation of the three tests and which one is appearing to be your preference for the course project. Explain why.

Please note, that you may change your choice by the time you submit your assignment at the end of this unit.
