Cleary, T. Anne; And Others
American Psychologist, 30, 1, 15-41, Jan 75
A report of a special panel, appointed by the Board of Scientific Affairs of the American Psychological Association, which investigates the use of ability tests with disadvantaged students in the schools, focusing especially on intelligence tests. Various sections present a discussion of the theoretical rationale of human abilities underlying the concept of general intelligence, a summary of some common classes of misuse and misinterpretation, an account of the kinds of statistical information needed to use a test effectively, and a commentary on existing alternatives to ability tests in evaluating students.
