African Americans and Standardized Tests: The Real Reason for Low Test Scores

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

My presentation will explore the reason for the often low standardized test scores of African American students and the impact of this performance on educational development, college admissions, career development, self-determination, and the development of students as critical thinking change agents.

I will discuss SAT scores by ethnicity and income levels. This information is not released by the College Board on a routine basis. I will give recommendations for parents, educators, and school systems. My presentation will have relevance for parents, teacher preparation programs, concerned citizens, and best practices regarding effective schools. The topics during the presentation will include:

Who cares about standardized test scores anyway?

From Africa to America: Implications for Standardized Tests

Why do African Americans score the lowest on standardized tests?

What are the implications for the criminal justice system?

What can parents, educators, and school systems do?
