Test Fairness: A DIF Analysis of an L2 Vocabulary Test.
Takala, Sauli; Kaftandjieva, Felianka
Language Testing, v17 n3 p323-40 Jul 2000
Analyzes gender-uniform differential item functioning (DIF) in a second language vocabulary test with the tools of item response theory to study potential gender impact on the test performance measured by different item composites. Results show that while there are test items with indications of DIF in favor of either females or males, the test as a whole is not gender-biased.(Author/VWL)
