Gender Differences on High School Science Achievement Tests: Do Format and Content Matter?
Hamilton, Laura S.
Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, v20 n3 p179-95 Fall 1998
Gender differences on the National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988 science tests were explored through statistical analyses and interviews with 25 high school students. Results show the importance of studying the validity of the outcome measure and suggest that conclusions about group differences and correlates of achievement depend on the specific features of test items.
