The Hazards of Testing Indian Children.
McDiarmid, G. L.
Referring principally to Indians on reserves, this summary paper discusses the role that poverty, health and nutrition, social conflict, language, and test motivation play in relation to interpretation of test data obtained on Indian children. It is reported that the 2 greatest problems affecting test reliability, validity, and validity of test interpretation in this context are language and test motivation. Approaches to measurement of the Indian child's mental ability that are reported to be promising are discussed. (BO)
