Klein, Stephen P.; And Others
Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, v19 n2 p83-97 Sum 1997
Whether differences in mean scores among gender and racial/ethnic groups on science performance assessments are comparable to those for traditional tests was studied with 2,000 students in grades five, six, and nine. Overall, results suggest that the type of test has little effect on these differences in scores. (SLD)
