Sex Differences in Objective Test Performance.
Murphy, R.J.L.
British Journal of Educational Psychology, v52 Pt2 p213-19 Jun 1982
A study of scores on England's General Certificate of Education (GCE) examinations suggested that, compared to females, males perform better on objective tests than they do on other forms of assessment. The fact that nonobjective tests emphasize written communication skills, which tend to be more highly developed in female candidates, may explain the results. (Author/MJL)
