Gender Differences by Item Difficulty Interactions in Multiple-Choice Mathematics Items.
Bielinski, John; Davison, Mark L.
American Educational Research Journal, v35 n3 p455-76 Fall 1998
Whether there is a gender-by-item interaction that makes easy mathematics test items easier for females than for males and difficult items harder for females than for males was tested in two studies, involving 10,321 eighth graders and 5332 ninth graders and results from nine mathematics tests. The hypothesis was generally supported, as discussed. (SLD)
