Gender Bias and the College Predictions of the SATs: A Cry of Despair.
Leonard, David K.; Jiang, Jiming
Research in Higher Education, v40 n4 p375-407 Aug 1999
Reviews and extends the literature demonstrating that the various College Board examinations, especially the Scholastic Aptitude Test, underpredict women's college grades relative to those of men in all fields except engineering, even when corrected for discipline and sampling. This suggests women are underrepresented relative to merit in freshman classes and scholarship competitions at selective public universities. Solutions are explored. (Author/MSE)
