Embedded within the globalization movement, the internationalization of testing and assessment has encouraged scholars, professionals, and practitioners to work together to enhance our research and practice in the cross-cultural context. The International Test Commission (ITC) was formed to serve this need. The ITC seeks to facilitate the exchange of information among members and stimulate cooperation on problems related to the construction, distribution, and use of psychological tests and other psycho-diagnostic tools. The ITC has also sought to advance knowledge and best practices related to international testing by the publication of guidelines and of a journal, the International Journal of Testing
. Consistent with these aims, the executive council of the ITC decided to launch a Handbook to present a state-of-the-art review on international testing. The ITC International Handbook of Testing and Assessment
has been published to address the many challenges facing the cross-cultural applications of psychological and educational testing in this era of globalization. It also represents and showcases the concerted efforts of the ITC in tackling the wide range of problems and complexities in international psychological testing. Finally, the Handbook
has been designed to provide information and resources to help guide professionals and graduate students regarding testing and assessment from an international and global perspective.Less
