Chapter

Abstract

The breadth of material that falls under the category of psychological testing is vast. For that reason, this chapter is an overview of the psychological testing field in which we address various sources of gender bias in psychological testing. We discuss some of the ways in which context influences both test performance and the broader task of psychological assessment.
