Summary

The author discusses the state of the art in assessment of African American children with possible handicaps. He asserts that changes must be made regarding the goal of assessment, the role of the assessors, the process of assessment, the criterion for validity, and the preparation of assessors. He further suggests that the problem with testing is neither bias, nor fairness, nor discrimination; rather, it is a problem of validity. Valid tests must be developed, he states, which are also culturally sensitive to identify the actual problems of African American children and provide them appropriate services. He singles out the System of Multicultural Pluralistic Assessment (SOMPA) as an example of testing alternatives which do not actually address the major flaws of standardized tests. (CL)
