A Position Statement on Nonbiased Assessment of Culturally Different Children. Region 9 Task Group on Nonbiased Assessment.
Northeast Regional Resource Center, Hightstown, NJ.
Intended for educational assessors, school administrators, and those involved in the education of teachers and assessors, the manual presents guidelines for nonbiased educational assessment of culturally different children. Addressed are three major issues (sample subtopics are in parentheses): standardization of tests (norms, validity, reliability, and criterion-referenced techniques); educational assessors (bias in testing, cooperation, rapport, theoretical models, test scores, wider knowledge and communication, and recommendations); and funding and legislation (Public Law 94-142 and recommendations). Appended is a 10-page guide for nonbiased and nondiscriminatory assessment of the culturally different child which can be used as a resource by assessors before, during, and after the evaluation of referred children.
