The Problem of Group Differences in Ability Test Scores in Employment Selection.
Schmidt, Frank L.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v33 n3 p272-92 Dec 1988
Draws from validity generalization research to summarize evidence disputing theories that objective employment tests are either biased against minorities or lack utility. Argues that group differences in test scores do not result from deficiencies in tests, but in skills they measure. Suggests that measurement-based research does not provide solution to problem of group differences. (NB)
