Missing the Mark: Intelligence Testing in Los Angeles Public Schools, 1922-32.
Raftery, Judith R.
History of Education Quarterly, v28 n1 p73-93 Spr 1988
Describes how Intelligence Quotient (I.Q.) testing came to be used in the Los Angeles, California public schools. Argues that the test generated more confusion and frustration among teachers and administrators than previously believed. Concludes that, despite pressure to use I.Q. scores exclusively for student classification, individual teachers and principals continued to exert the most influence on placement. (GEA)
