An Evaluation of the Sex Stereotyping Effect as Related to Counselor Perceptions of Courses Appropriate for High School Students.
Borgers, Sherry B.; Price, Gary E.
This study compared the appropriateness of course choices by female and male counselees as rated by female and male counselors to determine the possibility of sex bias effect. The sex, grade, and ability level of ratees were controlled in a four-way analysis of variance. The subjects were randomly selected and assigned to each counselor in order to insure equal numbers of males and females from each grade and each ability level. The counselors who rated each subject four times, were given achievement information, ability level data, courses previously taken, grades received, and information about future plans. While no significant differences were found between the ratings of the female and male counselors, significant differences were found in the following areas: (1) ability level and appropriate course selection; and (2) more appropriate course choice of females over males (using post hoc procedures the significant difference occurred at the junior year in high school).
