School Psychologists' Use of Techniques for Nondiscriminatory Assessment.
Johnson, Alex B.; And Others
The study investigated how often and to what extent during a multifactored assessment 71 school psychologists used techniques for nondiscriminatory assessment and determined the level of their participation in developing educational programs for handicapped minority students. Results of the School Psychologists Use of Nondiscriminatory (SPUN) Assessment indicated that the Ss seldom used techniques described in the SPUN or other less publicized procedures. Ss revealed, however, that they did participate in certain aspects of educational programing. Based on these results, it was recommended that preservice and inservice training programs consider including competency areas which emphasize the use and development of techniques for nondiscriminatory assessment and participation in the development of educational programs which enhance cultural diversity.
