Interpersonal Values of Intellectually Gifted Adolescent Females: Single-Sex or Co-Education?
Dederick, Warren E.; And Others
Interpersonal values of over 800 intellectually gifted adolescent females were studied for differences (1) between co-educational and all-girl settings, (2) between themselves and gifted adolescent boys, (3) between younger and older girls in all-girl settings, and (4) between themselves and national norms of adolescent girls. Six values were surveyed: support, conformity, recognition, independence, benevolence, and leadership. Findings revealed that gifted girls value benevolence more and leadership less than gifted boys but do not differ on the other values; that gifted girls in single-sex classes do not indicate different values than do gifted girls in co-educational classes; that gifted older girls value independence more than do gifted younger girls; and that gifted girls value support, independence, and leadership more and conformity and benevolence less than high school girls in general.
