"FEMINISTS cannot deny that girls get better grades, are more engaged
academically, and are now the majority sex in higher education. They argue,
however, that these advantages are hardly decisive. Boys, they point out, get
higher scores than girls on almost every significant standardized test --
especially the Scholastic Assessment Test and law school, medical school, and
graduate school admissions tests."
How can we explain that girls get better grades (administered subjectively by
teachers), while boys get better scores on standardized tests (administered
dispassionately by automated systems)?
