Research in Higher Education, v41 n3 p401-16 Jun 2000
Analysis of scores of 69,284 high school seniors on the 1990 Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) found higher means for men than women. Use of adjusted means (rather than observed means) increased the difference between men and women on the verbal section and decreased the difference on the mathematics section. Adjusted means may provide more appropriate comparisons in some cases. (Author/DB)
