Summary

This report asserts that the evaluation of young children can be viewed as a classic case of evaluation of the culturally different. Emphasized is the fact that not only are the majority of tests developed with an adult's perspective concerning adequacy of directions, items, and formats, but also the evaluation of the products is carried out within the context of adult experience and imperfect memory. Selected research literature concerning factors influencing the evaluation of young children is reviewed. Some new data is presented, including a syntactic analysis of verbal directions for children's tests and an analysis of the difficulty of directions read by children on other instruments. The normative equivalents of change-level scores on a number of standardized measures of cognitive variables are examined. The evidence supports the original conceptualization of cultural bias.
