Psychological Testing of Linguistic-Minority Students: Knowledge Gaps and Regulations.
Figueroa, Richard A.
Exceptional Children, v56 n2 p145-52 Oct 1989
The literature on testing has documented the existence of persistent anomalies in test scores of bilingual students. School psychology, which is test-dependent and test-defined, has an inadequate technology and knowledge base to deal with the testing of bilingual students, leading to error and misdiagnosis exacerbated by lack of viable testing regulations.
