Hispanic Test-Session Behavior on the Woodcock Johnson Psychoeducational Battery--Third Edition
Frisby, Craig L.; Osterlind, Steven J.
Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, v25 n3 p257-270 2007
This study examined potential differential examiner ratings for a large sample of self-identified Hispanics on the Woodcock Johnson Psychoeducational Battery-Third Edition (WJ-III) Test Session Observation Checklist (TSOC). Both between-group (Hispanics vs. non-Hispanics) and within-group analyses (Hispanics disaggregated by first spoken language, language spoken in the home, and mother's highest educational level) were conducted. Four research hypotheses were tested through 44 analyses. Most comparisons were not statistically significant, and across- and within-group differences had minimal influence in analyses that were statistically significant. The authors conclude that there is no compelling evidence of substantial systematic differences in examiner ratings of Hispanics' test-session behaviors on the WJ-III. (Contains 5 tables.)
