Gallagher, Ann; Bridgeman, Brent; Cahalan, Cara
Journal of Educational Measurement, v39 n2 p133-47 Sum 2002
Examined data from several national testing programs to determine whether the change from paper-based administration to computer-based tests influences group differences in performance. Results from four college and graduate entrance examinations and a professional licensing test show that African Americans and, to a lesser degree, Hispanics, appear to benefit from the shift. Discusses implications of these results. (SLD)
