Excerpt

The primary goal of this series is to disseminate information about major new research or applied developments in the field of personality assessment. We are striving to present a broad range of topics in personality assessment that reflect the diverse viewpoints and various assessment strategies that make up the field. The series is devoted to several types of contributions: relevant reviews of research areas and theoretical articles; empirical research studies; intensive case studies; and articles describing new, well developed assessment techniques.

Volume 4 begins with an interesting overview paper by McReynolds, from the University of Nevada, who traces some of the recent developments in the field of personality assessment and provides a concise analysis of several issues bearing on the future of personality assessment.

Costa and McCrae, from the Gerontology Research Center at the National Institute on Aging, provide a substantial contribution to the field of personality assessment research in their article dealing with concurrent validation of personality assessment research after 20 years. Their article deals with personality stability over time and provides an extensive empirical analysis of this important assessment problem. Yacov Rofẹ + ́ of Bar Ilan University in Israel, in an extensive presentation of his work in marital adjustment, discusses his approach to the assessment of marital happiness.

This volume differs somewhat from the previous three volumes in the series which generally contained chapters with heterogeneous content.
