Report and synthesis of the psychological study of remote areas: R5-150/1973E-PDF

"It is a known fact that decisions concerning the future education of children are made on the basis of intelligence tests taken when the children are eleven or twelve years old; indeed, the entire modern education system is based on relatively recent psychological discoveries and theories. In many cases, Amerindian children are not the exception to the rule. It is therefore worthwhile to ask ourselves if the mathematical models of the tests correspond to the psycho-social and psycho-cultural reality. To what extent can these behaviour models be adapted to an Amerindian environment?"--Introduction.
