DIF in Native Language and Gender Groups in an ESL Placement Test.
Kunnan, Antony John
TESOL Quarterly, v24 n4 p741-46 1990
This study shows that a placement test cannot only be examined for items that display differential item functioning (DIF) by using an item response theory, but also that the identification of potential sources for these DIF items can be attempted and short- and long-term measures to reduce DIF can then be proposed.
