Straight Talk about Cognitive Assessment and Diversity.
Frisby, Craig L.
School Psychology Quarterly, v14 n3 p195-207 Fall 1999
Discusses three reasons explaining heightened interest in alternative assessment in the context of diversity issues in school psychology: inadequacy of traditional test use with language populations for whom tests were not designed; the hope that alternative assessment will eliminate, reduce, or camouflage average score differences between American-born English-speaking groups; and the hope that widespread use of alternative assessment will lead to reform in education, particularly in school psychology.
