Summary

An inservice teacher education program--designed to make those administering tests more aware of the difficulties students face in a testing due to discriminatory factors inherent in evaluation instruments--is described, and information is provided on program purposes, content, activities, resources, ordering information, and history of development. Participants in the program work on simulated test activities and then evaluate the results. Specific topics discussed include perception and muscle control problems, language problems, conceptualization problems, and cultural difference problems. (DS)
