Sex Bias in Testing. An Annotated Bibliography.
Hunt, Barbara, Comp.
This 125-item annotated bibliography gives access to much of research undertaken in the past decade concerning sex bias in testing, e.g., educational achievement tests, career interest inventories, and aptitude tests attacked as being biased against females. The items originated with a computer search of several data bases including the following: The Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) data base yields documents announced in Resources in Education (RIE) and journal articles indexed in Current Index to Journals in Education (CIJE), which covers more than 700 education-related journals; Psychological Abstracts; and Comprehensive Dissertation Abstracts. Entries are numbered and listed alphabetically by author; an abstract or, in the case of journal articles, a shorter annotation is provided for each citation. A subject index consisting of ERIC descriptors and entry numbers follows the bibliography. (RL)
