What Does it Mean to Say a Test is Biased?
Green, Donald Ross
Education and Urban Society, 8, 1, 33-52, Nov 75
States that to demonstrate that a test is not biased for any given use, it is sufficient to show that it is equally valid for different groups. Although an examination of criterion-related validity can indicate bias, it is not ordinarily sufficient to indicate lack of bias, for which explorations of its construct validity regardless of use are almost always required.
