Sex and Jurisdiction Differences in Achievement.
Randhawa, Bikkar S.; Hunt, Dennis
This study examined rural/urban and sex differences in achievement in reading, language, and mathematics for 4918 students in grades 4, 7, and 10 from a midwestern province in Canada. Particular attention was given to subskill and sex differences in mathematics achievement. Each student was administered a mental ability test and an achievement battery by the classroom teacher. A two-factor (sex, jurisdiction) multivariate and univariate analysis of covariance was performed on the data. Students from rural schools attained superior achievement in a majority of the subtests. The analysis of subtests and subskills in mathematics indicated a significant male superiority which appeared to be developmental. (MNS)
