Laosa, Luis M.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v76 n6 p1178-98 Dec 1984
Chicano and non-Hispanic White Children (n=171, age two and one-half years) from diverse backgrounds were tested using the McCarthy Scales of Children's Abilities. Mothers were interviewed for family data. Ethnic group performance differences were explained (statistically) by a combination of effects associated with ethnic differences in socioeconomic status and home language. (Author/BS)
