Trial by Fire: One Perspective for Guessing.
Brown, Jonathan R.
Psychology in the Schools, v29 n1 p71-77 Jan 1992
Notes that, by guessing, children may score within normal range on tests by chance alone. Describes one process, random guessing, for estimating "true blind guessing score" (range of scores) that, if known, would result in missing fewer at-risk children. Sensitizes test administrators to tests that do not address or have suspicious corrections for guessing answers. (Author/NB)
