The Assessment of Minority Groups: An Annotated Bibliography. ERIC-IRCD Urban Disadvantaged Series, Number 34, August 1973.
Barabas, Jean, Comp.
The materials cited here represent information on such diverse but interrelated areas as: methods of assessing achievement, intelligence, personality factors, and attitudes; effects of testing on self concept and employment opportunities; prediction of academic success; reliability and validity of specific tests; criticism of the methods and use of assessment; test construction; use of assessment for educational placement and diagnosis; culture free and culture fair tests; performance differences on tests between majority and minority groups. The educational literature from the early 1960's to the present from the following sources was searched: the ERIC system, the Library of Teachers College, Columbia University, the in-house document collection of the ERIC Information Retrieval Center on the Disadvantaged, and several existing bibliographies. A few pieced dated prior to 1960 were included. The bibliography is arranged alphabetically by author and is followed by a subject index. Each citation is cross-referenced under two or more of the index terms which, hopefully, best describe the material. The bibliography is completely annotated. For those documents which deal only in part or peripherally with minority groups, relevant quotations are given or the relevant sections are described. A fuller annotation is included for those materials which deal totally with minority group assessment. (Author/JM)
