Inservice Training of School Psychologists in Nondiscriminatory Assessment of Bilingual Children.
The goals of this nondiscriminatory assessment training model are presented in terms of training school psychologists to carry out their tasks with greater sensitivity to the needs of bilingual students and to work with the resources available within the school and the community. The two courses of an inservice program focusing on cultural-ethnic characteristics and its effects on classroom performance are detailed, in which a competency-based model is divided into instructional modules consisting of individual units. The evaluation procedure for the inservice program is also summarized, including an overview of the results which indicated that the major goals of the program were met. (JAC)
