Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v45 n4 p353-76 Win 1999
Evaluates the equivalence of translated achievement tests administered to 4,400 English- and French-speaking sixth-graders. Items displaying differential item functioning were flagged using three statistical methods; results were relatively consistent across methods, but not identical. Substantive review of French items via back-translation to English correlated well, but not perfectly, with statistical methods. Contains 56 references. (Author/SV)
