This study explores the scope and nature of sex
differences in the December 1974 aptitude tests of
the Graduate Record Examination by identifying
individual test items that differ from the other
items in terms of the magnitude of the difference in
item difficulty for the sexes. The method is that’
used in earlier studies by Angoff and Stern (1971)
and by Strassberg-Rosenberg and Donlon (1975). In
general, limited evidence of sex differences was established.
