Preview

This chapter provides an overview of the seven main categories of behavioral assessment and describes some individual tests of behaviors in each category. It is broken into seven sections that provide overviews on a selection of behavioral tests useful in assessing that behavioral category. Representative references are provided for each test, but the reader is directed to specific chapters earlier in the book for more extensive reference lists. The test descriptions are intended to present a summary of a given test procedure rather than presenting the apparatus and procedural details; these can be obtained in cited methods references.
