Review:

"This is a book which deserves to be widely read. It is a significant contribution to a neglected, yet socially crucial, area." - Times Educational Supplement "In this thoughtful and comprehensive book, Gipps and Murphy steer a scholarly course around the stormy polemic that often permeates the topic...It will provide a very comprehensive source for all those involved with research into both assessment and equity issues." - Local Economy "...a volume, which should have a major impact on future work on assessment both within the UK and further afield. These two talented authors have conducted an awesome review of well over 300 published research studies relating to bias, discrimination inequality and differential achievement. The book helpfully clarifies what the authors see as the key equity issues in educational assessment, through a review of developments in relevant areas of psychology, intelligence testing,national assessment programmes in the UK and the USA, public examinations and national curriculum assessments. This is a book which deserves to be widely read. It is a significant contribution to a neglected yet socially crucial area." - T.E.S. "This book offers a good comprehensive text on assessment issues, clearly focused on equity, and so should be useful for learner, beginning and experienced teachers as well as those with a more scholarly ordetached interest in assessment." - British Journal of Curriculum and Assessment "This is a scholarly and well-researched contribution." - SAGE race relations abstracts
