Research on the Disadvantaged: An Annotated List of Relevant ETS Studies, 1951-1969.
Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ.
This annotated list of Educational Testing Service (ETS) studies includes the following types of investigations with findings related to low socioeconomic and minority groups: studies designed specifically to investigate the educational, personal, and social characteristics of the disadvantaged; studies of other populations of minority groups as a variable; studies concerned with the development of theories, methods, and techniques which hold promise for more effective analyses of data collected in connection with studies of the disadvantaged; and surveys of literature and analyses of theoretical concepts which have significance for research on the disadvantaged. The main list contains resumes of 76 studies completed from 1951 to August 1969. These are listed in 11 categories: background factors (7 studies); cognitive processes, development and functioning (8); educational and vocational attainment (6); evaluation of programs (17); literature reviews (6); prediction (12); racial attitudes (2); school characteristics (2); test characteristics (2); test performance (3); theories, methods, and techniques (9). Also listed with brief descriptive annotations are 22 studies in progress. Availability of reports from ETS is indicated, and citations are supplied for the 18 studies published as journal articles.
