A Note on Minority Group Test Bias Studies.
Reilly, Richard R.
Comparisons of majority and minority group regression lines for purposes of assessing test bias may, under certain conditions, be viewed as comparisons of conditional bivariate distributions. Where these conditions hold, findings should reveal parallel regression lines except for a special case. Given the conditions described, one implication is that even when the test is a parallel form of the criterion, lines with equal slopes but unequal intercepts should be found. (Author)
