Jean, Here is the test from Alabama in 1965. Only blacks were required to take it.The first link is to the test. It was fill in the blank.The second link is the same test but in multiple choice form. I did better than DH, but not good enough to pass. This test seems fundamentally fair, especially if it is "open book" (so one can refer to the document during the test).The fact that officials did not administer the test to everybody, however, is completely unacceptable.I like the approach that the Registry of Motor Vehicles employed when I tested for my learner's permit: a fixed number of questions that a computer chose randomly from an approved question bank. That way, (1) no candidate can know the exact content of the test and (2) no examiner can pick easy questions for one candidate and difficult questions for another.BTW, I found some problems in the interactive version beyond the error noted on the web page that the people who run the site apparently are trying to fix.Norm.
