Azen, Razia; Bronner, Shmuel; Gafni, Naomi
Applied Measurement in Education, v15 n1 p75-94 2002
Examined whether the measures used in the admission of students to universities in Israel are gender-biased, using first-year university performance as the criterion and six predictors. Results for 61,885 Hebrew speakers show that no gender bias was detected when using the admissions score but bias in favor of women was found when using school grades predominantly as predictor.
