Success and Failure: A Micro-Ethnographic Comparison of Navajo and Anglo Students' Perceptions of Testing.
Deyhle, Donna
Curriculum Inquiry, v16 n4 p365-89 Win 1986
A comparison of Anglo and Navajo students' perceptions of school achievement tests revealed a cultural dichotomy concerning the significance and purpose of tests. Study results pose policy questions: Should students be enculturated into test-taking values or should testing forms be changed to reflect cultural considerations of valued knowledge? (CJH)
