Examined racial, gender, intellectual, achievement, and grade-level status of 344 students referred for learning disabilities diagnosis. Found that being white, older, and of higher intelligence and achievement were characteristics of those found ineligible despite severe discrepancy. Being female and less academically able were characteristics of those declared eligible without severe discrepancy. (Author/NB)
