113 p. 

At the 1977 Educational Testing Service (ETS) Invitational Conference, the ETS Measurement Award was presented to Anne Anastasi. In view of the convergence of measurement and the law, the conference focused on six related issues. Barbara Lerner explored the screening procedures of American professional and graduate schools in "Equal Protection and External Screening: Davis, De Funis, and Bakke," and was responded to by Ernest M. Bernal, Jr., and Deane C. Siemer. Melvin R. Novick discussed funding allocations under Title I, admissions policy and the Bakke case, federal guidelines for employment testing, and due process in the handling of suspected cheating cases, in "The Influence of the Law on Professional Measurement Standards." Winton H. Manning responded to Novick's presentation. In the final session, Wayne H. Holtzman reviewed the implications of several court cases in "Validity and Legality;" Charles L. Thomas discussed "Some Possible Social Implications of Recent Court Decisions;" Norman Frederiksen offered some ideas for improvement in test use in "There Ought to Be a Law;" and Michael Scriven suggested what measurement experts might learn about decision making from the law, in "The Logic of Judgment in Evaluation and the Law: Making Hard Decisions with Soft Data."
