Great post! I am not a specialist, and this is super-informative. How well are studies based on standardized tests able to control for selection into actually getting to take the tests? If only the smarter girls or boys, or if only the girls from certain socio-economic backgrounds get to go to school in the first place, then the comparisons of tests scores will confound gender and other effects.
