Workshop on Sex Bias and Sex Fairness in Career Interest Inventories. Report of Proceedings, March 6-8, 1974.
Crump, Carol B., Ed.
This document contains abstracts of papers from a workshop resulting from events stemming from the Office of Education report, A Look at Women in Education: Issues and Answers for HEW. This report charged that a particular career interest inventory was sex-biased, but no operational definition of sex bias was given, the issues involved were not discussed in depth, and no solutions were offered. In planning sessions held prior to the workshop, a set of tentative guidelines for determining sex bias and sex fairness in career interest inventories was refined, a list of workshop participants was developed, and the workshop itself was outlined. This report of the workshop proceedings provides the reader with the background of the workshop, an overview of the sessions, and the effects of the guidelines and other materials resulting from it.
