“Native Americans may underestimate the seriousness of tests, lack test-taking skills, or lack motivation to perform on tests.” (p. 66 )
“Test sophistication also affects performance for Asian Americans. The later generations ofJapanese and Chinese American come from backgrounds in which the mean income level equals or surpasses that of Whites, and they hold many attitudes and values similar to the majority culture. There are aspects of their cultures, however, that influence them to place increased emphasis on the results of achievement and aptitude tests and less on other types of performance. In addition, education, especially higher education, is much valued and supported, with particular value placed on attending prestigious institutions of higher education… …Given the within-group variation among Asian Americans, client motivation and test sophistication are quite different for other subgroups, such as Southeast Asians.” (p. 66-67)

“Clients from a culture in which the emphasis is on agreeing with nearly everything…” (p. 72)
