A Bibliography of Materials, Educational and Testing Studies Related to Chicano Scholastics.
While language has been the chief factor cited as causing Chicano youth to score below the majority population on mental and educational measurement scales, other explanatory factors identified by researchers over the years include socio-economic status, residential area (urban/rural), ethnicity and culture. Citations for 253 studies, books, journal articles, curriculum materials, doctoral dissertations, masters theses and bibliographies, dating from 1923 to 1979, represent an effort to identify available literature pertaining to the achievement and performance of Chicano students. Entries are arranged alphabetically by author, with a separate section for the 32 bibliographies. A brief annotation is included for most entries, along with appropriate bibliographic information, i.e., title, publisher, place and date of publication, volume number and pagination. (NEC)
