Guidelines for Service as an Expert Witness in Civil Suits Pertaining to School Desegregation.
Dobbin, John E.
In this speech, testing experts or clinical psychologists called to give evidence in court cases on segregation either in the school or the classroom are provided with guidelines in preparing their case in document form with sources ready at hand. It is suggested that as much information as possible be available to the lawyer for whom the psychologist is called to testify, and that strategy be worked out in advance. The litigation that is primarily discussed concerns procedures such as "ability grouping" and standardized tests as methods for assigning children to various groups. Recent documents on testing and ability grouping as well as testimony of expert witnesses on these questions are included. (JW)
