The New Faces of Fairness.
Cole, Nancy S.; Zieky, Michael J.
Journal of Educational Measurement, v38 n4 p369-82 Win 2001
Proposes additional ways for people in the measurement profession to think about the fairness of assessments and about the fairness of the uses of assessments. Suggests that measurement professionals must pay more attention to reducing group differences at the design stage of test development, to providing all examinees an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge, to deterring test misuse, and to accommodating differences among individuals.
