Project IN/SLIP (Intermountain School Learner Identification Program). Final Report.

Approximately 300 ninth grade Navajo boys and girls attending Intermountain School for the first time or returning after a lengthy absence participated in two projects of psychological evaluations and vision, speech, and hearing evaluations. Analysis of the psychological testing (involving achievement, aptitude, and self concept measurements) revealed that 50% of the students fell in the lowest quartile of norms for beginning seventh grade students, that the Tennessee Self Concept Scale proved unreliable, and that the Cattell Culture Fair test appeared to be the most valid aptitude measurement for the group. Results of the sensory evaluations (including tests of articulation, audiometry, vision screening, and the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test) also indicated that the subjects scored below the available normative data in every area.
