Bias among Professionals Who Erroneously Declare Students Eligible for Special Services.
Ysseldyke, James E.; Algozzine, Bob
Journal of Experimental Education, v50 n4 p223-28 Sum 1982
The psychoeducational processes school diagnosticians use in decisions about students were studied. Bogus referral problem information for one of 16 "cases" was provided: assessment data indicated average performance. Fifty-two percent of the subjects recommended special education for the average child; these decisions were a function of referral information. (Author/CM)
