In this two part series, James Bywater and Anna Brown summarise some of the issues involved in determining the correct length of assessment in a personality questionnaire (PQ). In the first instalment they discuss the general issues that test designers face, and in the second they cover some more modern solutions to these, with associated disadvantages.

It is aimed at practitioners rather than hard core psychometricians and can not be exhaustive. However wherever possible it attempts to distil out practical messages for the audience.
