Testing, Labelling Classification of Six Major Issues Facing Blacks.
This paper presents the purpose, format, topics of seminar sessions, and participant recommendations of a conference on educational testing processes and their relation to blacks. The conference was held to familiarize participants with research data demonstrating the fallacies and inconsistencies inherent in the testing process as it relates to blacks, to examine the racist implications of reliance on accepted measures of ability, and to discuss related national laws and educational policies. Participant reactions to issues raised in the seminars are discussed. Twenty three recommendations made by participants are listed. (SB)
