Measurement of Intellectual Potential Mexican-American School-Age Children.
Mukherjee, Ajit Kumar; And Others
Described is the development of an ethnologically unbiased test for proper classification of Mexican-American elementary students. It is explained that of the 14 subtests drawn from standardized and nonstandardized tests and administered to 122 Anglo and Mexican American children (7-9 years old), only five were found to be insignificantly correlated with ethnic background. It is reported that these five subtests along with two additional tests (Haptic Memory and the Peabody Picture Vocabluary Test) were then administered to 297 Mexican-American Ss, and that the results were used to produce a profile of intellect. Educational implications of the test include screening, placement, and differential diagnosis of strengths and weaknesses. Descriptions of the seven subtests are appended. (CL)
