Professional Development, Promotion, and Pay Differences Between Women and Men in Educational Psychology.
Ekstrom, Ruth B.
A questionnaire about graduate school and professional experiences was completed by 235 white females, 10 minority females, 198 white males, and 12 minority males who hold the doctoral degree and are members of the American Psychological Association, Division of Educational Psychology. Tentative findings, based on simple descriptive statistics, reveal that women have less access to research training and teaching assistantships than men. Women receive lower salaries than men and are less likely to be employed in doctoral degree-granting universities. Women have lower research productivity and are more likely to describe themselves as underemployed. A multivariate analysis of the interactions among the variables is necessary to determine whether or not discrimination caused these differences. (Author)
