A Test User's Guide to Serving a Multicultural Community.
Lundberg, David; Kirk, Wyatt
Testing is one means of viewing differences among individuals. Culture is another means. When we mix testing and culture together, the results are fascinating and often confusing. Generally, we test individuals in an attempt either to serve them or reward them, and if we want to reward people, there is a strong desire and need to be fair. However, fairness is not easy to define or implement in the volatile arena of testing and culture. This chapter explores various recommended actions and strategies for pursuing fairness in the testing process. (Contains 10 references.) (GCP)
