Content Effects on Word Problem Performance: A Possible Source of Test Bias?
Chipman, Susan F.; And Others
American Educational Research Journal, v28 n4 p897-915 Win 1991
The effects of problem content on mathematics word problem performance were explored for 128 male and 128 female college students solving problems with masculine, feminine, and neutral (familiar and unfamiliar) cover stories. No effect of sex typing was found, and a small, but highly significant, effect was found for familiarity. (SLD)
