Summary. The subject of this article is test and item bias. It is a brief discussion of
models and statistical procedures to explore the psychometric properties of bias in
standarized test. There are at least two approaches that one may take to define the term
„bias". One approach is to examine the use to which test scores may be put. Selection of
applicants to schools, jobs, and a variety of programs and services are the examples of
such situations. This approach requires the comparison of test results for particular groups
against some outside criterion. An alternative route to understanding the accusation that
tests are biased is to examine the test items themselves in the absence of outside criterion.
