The Second Edition of this classic work has been thoroughly updated and revised with an additional chapter providing a powerful rebuttal to The Bell Curve. Ronald J Samuda presents a comprehensive analysis of the perspectives, pitfalls, fallacies, issues, consequences and trends in the use of standardized norm-referenced tests with American minorities. He demonstrates that testing continues to be the primary method for injecting pseudoscientific arguments which bolster discrimination, prejudice and social injustice.
