Racial Norming: A Debate.
Dawes, Robyn M.; Humphreys, Lloyd G.
Academe, v79 n3 p31-37 May-Jun 1993
Two sides of debate on racial norming of aptitude tests are argued: that aptitude tests cannot be neutral to experience because aptitude itself is not neutral to experience, thus fairness to everyone is not possible in a single test; and that, predictively, ability tests are essentially color-blind and racial norming satisfies affirmative action goals only at time of selection.
