An Empirical Demonstration of Bias in HSC Examination Results.
Dunn, Terrence R.
Australian Journal of Education, v26 n2 p190-203 Aug 1982
The question of bias in the way Higher School Certificate (HSC) scores relate to university results is examined. Analyses showed that HSC scores were biased against state school students. State school students were found to perform better at university than do independent school students having the same HSC scores. (Author/MLW)
