Jensen’s Contributions Concerning Test Bias: A Contextual View

WithRobert A. Gordon

If an assessment of Jensen’s research on test bias is to be meaningful to future generations and to contemporary readers outside the United States as well, a brief description of its social matrix must be included. Following that description, I attempt to identify characteristics of Jensen’s research style that distinguish him to some degree from other scientists concerned with the same topic. Finally, I discuss Jensen’s own contributions and evaluate them against the background of other research.
