MacMillan, Donald L.; Forness, Steven R.
Remedial and Special Education, v19 n4 p239-53 Jul-Aug 1998
Reviews the use of IQ scores in determining special education placement. It argues that although IQ is central to state education codes and their eligibility criteria for special education, the evidence shows that many children exhibiting psychometric scores that would make them eligible are never referred.
