Methods of assessing the disadvantaged in manpower programs: a review and analysis by Thomas E Backer( Book )

8 editions published between 1972 and 1974 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper represents an attempt to draw together what is known about assessment techniques of special potential for use with the disadvantaged in manpower programs. Many traditional paper-and-pencil tests are of limited use in these programs because a great many disadvantaged persons do not have the reading skills, test-wiseness, or cultural experiences necessary to perform well. In an attempt to solve this dilemma, the Manpower Administration and other agencies have sponsored research and development efforts to devise assessment tools tailored to the special needs of the culturally deprived manpower program enrollee. Although some of the tools developed involve significant breaks from the paper-and-pencil testing tradition, many still have the paper-and-pencil format but are modified in terms of item content, test structure, and directions. Suggestions are made for future directions in this regard. (Author/SN)

There are three main sections in this monograph: Print Publications, which includes books and journal articles; Test Information Systems, which describes the small number of projects and systems specifically related to psychological testing information; and Supplementary Sources, which lists other reference works and information systems which may be relevant. The brief section on information searching strategies, describes methods for evaluating the accuracy and the quality of the information retrieved (and thus of the test instrument itself). The index contains listings of printed works, information systems, and supplementary sources (indexes and reviews). (Author/MV)
