African-Americans' Test-taking Attitudes and Their Effect on Cognitive Ability Test Performance: Implications for Public Personnel Management Selection Practice.
McKay, Patrick F.; Doverspike, Dennis
Public Personnel Management, v30 n1 p67-75 Spr 2001

These attitudes may influence motivation, anxiety, and test performance. Training in test-taking skills and use of alternative testing formats are possible solutions. (SK)
