Summary

The Black English tests for students attempt to provide a complete picture of a Black child's language proficiency, including the child's relative proficiency in the standard and vernaculary forms of speech. Three different tests, which can be taken separately, are included in this manual. The "Discrimination Test" measures the ability to distinguish Vernacular Black English from Standard Black English. This ability has been found to correlate significantly with reading achievement and is relevant to various standardized language and achievement tests. The "Repetition Tests" measures the ability to reproduce Vernacular Black English and Standard English. It is well suited to detect the relative knowledge of vernacular and standard language among Black children in grades 1 through 3. The "Production Test" elicits standard and vernacular responses with the help of spoken standard and vernacular cues and visual stimuli. Like the Repetition Test, it gives information about relative proficiency in vernacular and standard speech. The tests are appended along with the history of the development of the tests, the results of field testing, and titles of previous publications about the field tests. (NCR)
