Abstract

Comments on J. C. Stanley and C. P. Benbow's (see record) assertion concerning gender differences in the distribution of SAT-M scores. The present author contends that if an emphasis on group differences minimizes the magnitude of gender differences, then an emphasis on ratio can only exaggerate such differences.
