The Failure of Selection and the Problem of Prediction: Racism vs. Measurement in Higher Education
Hixson, Judson; Epps, Edgar G.
Journal of Afro-American Issues, 3, 1, 117-128, W 75

Therefore, their continued use raises the question of whether this is a measurement problem or an instance of racism. (EH)
