In exploratory analyses of difficulty, one of three manipulated item features, problem structure, had a significant effect. Our impact analyses detected no significant gender differences independent of those associated with the GRE quantitative section. Finally, while more participants preferred regular multiple-choice graphical reasoning questions to GM items, more also thought GM was the fairer indicator of their ability to undertake graduate study.
