Gender Bias in Examinations: How Equal Are the Opportunities?
Stobart, Gordon; And Others
British Educational Research Journal, v18 n3 p261-76 1992
Discusses gender differences apparent in British public examination entry patterns and outcomes. Questions whether examinations should be designed for equal outcomes and the assumption that assessment techniques may differentially affect performances of males and females. Argues that because other factors such as different experiences and expectations affect performance, contrived equal outcomes should be avoided. (DK)
