Presenting the major trends, theories, and practices in assessing culturally diverse clients, Advances in Cross-Cultural Assessment comprises chapters from some of the key leading authors in intelligence and intelligence testing. Author Ronald J. Samuda and associates contend that classic IQ tests and traditional standardized tests of cognitive ability are only appropriate for middle-class mainstream individuals, not for those of different cultural backgrounds. For those who grow up in deficient "environmental backgrounds" (inadequate rearing, serious economic stress), the traditional objective standardized tests are neither valid nor reliable in measuring intelligence. A number of scholars, some of whom are among the bookÆs contributing authors, have introduced alternative approaches to assessing cognitive ability in persons from such backgrounds. A groundbreaking volume that encourages professionals to treat individuals on an individual basis, Advances in Cross-Cultural Assessment will heighten the awareness of professionals and academics in clinical and counseling psychology, educational psychology, social work, psychology, public health, and ethnic studies.
