The Role of Black Studies Scholars in Helping Black Students Cope with Standardized Tests.
Smith, J. Owens
Journal of Negro Education, v53 n3 p334-40 Sum 1984
Standardized tests have been used to deny Blacks and other non-Whites access to higher education and employment. The tests do not measure intelligence or innate ability but rather vocabulary, philosophical concepts, and literary devices. Black scholars must lead in developing a system to help Black students overcome these cultural biases. (KH)
