Longitudinal Prediction of School Achievement for Metis and Eskimo Pupils.
MacArthur, R.S.
Research in this effort attempted to review evidence of the construct validity of certain measures of intellectual potential for Canadian native pupils, and to examine the relative predictive validity, over a four-year period, of several measures of general intellectual ability for a sample of Metis pupils at Faust, Alberta, and 2 samples of Eskimo pupils. The measures of intellectual potential identified as having the least amount of cultural bias included Progressive Matrices, Safran Culture-Reduced Intelligence Test, Cattell test of g scale 2, and some subtests of Lorge-Thorndike Non-Verbal Intelligence Tests. Useful predictive validity coefficients between culture-reduced ability tests administered in 1962 and Vernon achievement tests administered in 1965 were reported for the 2 Eskimo samples. For the Metis group, culture-reduced measures did not differ significantly from conventional ability tests. (VM)
