Description - Intelligence Testing and Minority Students by Richard R. Valencia

`This book is an excellent resource for students interested in learning about IQ testing in the US. The authors are thorough and systematic in their coverageof the history of intelligence testing, often bringing out aspects that are generally not known' - RACE Intelligence Testing and Minority Students offers the reader a fresh opportunity to re-learn and re-consider the implications of intelligence testing. Richard R Valencia and Lisa A Suzuki discuss the strengths and limitations of IQ testing relative to the factors which may contribute to biased results. They: review the history of the adaptation and adoption of intelligence testing; evaluate the heredity-environment debate; and discuss the specific performance factors which apply to IQ testing of those in minority ethnic groups. This practical book offers the practitioner a good sense of what can be done to make testing and education serve the needs of all students fairly and validly, whatever their background.
