Summary
How far is assessment fair? In this evaluation of research from a wide range of countries the authors examine the evidence for differences in performance among gender and ethnic groups on various forms of assessment. They explore the reasons put forward for these observed differences and clarify the issues involved. The authors' concern is that assessment practice and interpretation of results are just for all groups. This is a complex field in which access to schooling, the curriculum offered, pupil motivation and esteem, teacher stereotype and expectation all interact with the mode of assessment. This analytical and comprehensive overview is essential reading in a field crucial to educators
