Performance versus Objective Testing and Gender: An Exploratory Study of an Advanced Placement History Examination.
Breland, Hunter M.; And Others
Journal of Educational Measurement, v31 n4 p275-93 Win 1994
Random samples of free-response tests (200 males and 200 females) were taken from the 1986 U.S. History advanced placement examination. Rescoring focusing on historical content and analyses indicate that free-response tasks, in contrast with objective tests, may have inherent characteristics that reward females' English-composition abilities.
