    In Washington State boys and girls are scoring equally well on the 4th
    grade assessment. A fairness committee was set up to review all possible
    test items on all of our tests being designed related to our reform. The
    committee consisted of conservative, liberal, individuals from various
    cultural groups, was gender balanced and included others representing other
    groups interested in equity. I think it has served us well. A test item
    analysis was conducted after piloting to determine if certain groups of
    students had difficulty with certain items and recommendations were made to
    delete or maintain the item from the item bank.
