School Psychologists' Use of Nondiscriminatory Assessment: Implications for Educating Handicapped Minority Students.
Johnson, Alex B.; Fiscus, Edward
The study investigated the use by school psychologists of procedures for nondiscriminatory assessment of handicapped students. Ss were surveyed via the School Psychologists' Use of Nondiscriminatory Assessment (SPUN). Results indicated that Ss never used most of the techniques during evaluation described in SPUN. Further, Ss indicated they they were frequently involved in educational programing for handicapped minority students, except for outlining classroom activities emphasizing cultural diversity and identifying educational materials depicting multicultural themes. Findings suggested that school psychologists undergo extensive preservice and inservice training on administering and perhaps also developing techniques for nondiscriminatory assessment. It was also recommended that educators identify educational materials related to racial and ethnic themes. (Author/CL)
