This investigation of Differential Bundle Functioning (DBF) of numeracy and literacy tests administered to Grade 3 learners in South Africa was based on data gathered for the Assessment Modelling Initiative (AMI). A baseline study was conducted in 2000 and repeated in 2001 and 2002. The results reported here are based on the 2002 study.
