Ghorpade, Jai; Lackritz, James R.
Journal of Management Education, v22 n4 p452-71 Aug 1998
Two multiple-choice tests and one essay test were taken by 231 students (50/50 male/female, 192 White, 39 East Asian, Black, Mexican American, or Middle Eastern). Multiple-choice tests showed no significant differences in equal employment opportunity terms; women and men scored about the same on essays, but minority students had significantly lower scores on essays.
