Measuring Success and Failure in the Classroom: Teacher Communication about Tests and the Understandings of Young Navajo Students.
Deyhle, Donna
Peabody Journal of Education, v61 n1 p67-85 Fall 1983
Navajo Indian children often encounter difficulties in school because their culturally accepted ways of displaying competencies differ from those expected in school environments. Failure to accept or interpret test data may result in poor test results, which teachers see as disinterest in academic achievement. (DF)
