Gender Bias in IQ-Discrepancy and Post-Discrepancy Definitions of Reading Disability.
Share, David L.; Silva, Phil A.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v36 n1 p4-14 Jan-Feb 2003
A study investigated whether higher prevalence of reading disabilities among boys is related to gender bias in the prediction of reading from IQ. Data from 1,139 New Zealand children (collected during ages 5-13) indicate a significant intercept bias. Boys' predicted reading scores were systematically overestimated, thereby inflating IQ-reading discrepancies. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
