A Note on Native American Literatures and Standardized Tests.
Hadella, Paul
Studies in American Indian Literatures, v10 n1 p83-85 Spr 1998
A professor submitted a passage on Native American literature for the reading comprehension section of a postgraduate standardized test. The passage (reproduced in full) points out the difficult questions that Native American literature poses about personal identity. The passage was rejected as potentially disturbing to Native American test takers, possibly interfering with their performance. (SV)
