US News & World Report looks at the disparate scores that blacks and white officers achieved on a standardized test. The article notes that in the past scores for minorities were ususally adjusteed using various techniques-known as race norming-but this practice was banned by Congress when it passed the 1991 Civil Rights Restoration Act. The article does find that on performance tests, blacks invariably scored better than whites. A compromise that has been recommended is basing promotions on a mixture of written and performance tests. Aug. 15, 1994.
