Intelligence Testing and Minority Students offers the reader a fresh opportunity to re-learn and re-consider the implications of intelligence testing.
Richard R Valencia and Lisa A Suzuki discuss the strengths and limitations of IQ testing relative to the factors which may contribute to biased results. They: review the history of the adaptation and adoption of intelligence testing; evaluate the heredity-environment debate; and discuss the specific performance factors which apply to IQ testing of those in minority ethnic groups.
This practical book offers the practitioner a good sense of what can be done to make testing and education serve the needs of all students fairly and validly, whatever their background.
