John Ringo and a student examine an SSP report. "One cannot help but be impressed with the SSP's excellent theoretical and empirical development, clinical utility, wide adoption in school practice, and Bowen & colleagues' continued commitment to enhancing its psychometric properties. Considering these factors, I have no doubt that with continued development the SSP will earn a reputation as the MMPI of school assessment ."
