Diagnostic and Prescriptive Bias in School Psychologists' Reports of a Learning Disabled Child.
Frame, Roger E.; And Others
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v17 n1 p12-15 Jan 1984
In a simulated learning disability care program presented to 24 experienced school psychologists, only 17 of the 744 possible diagnostic main effects and two-way interactions which might indicate bias were found to be significant, with seven differences being expected by chance. No statements about intelligence, classroom behavior, or social relationships had statistically significant differences. (Author/CL)
