A Study of the Differences by Sex in Self-Selection Patterns of Participation in Activities of a Program for High School Gifted Students.
Leukhardt, Joan C.
Analysis of the self selection patterns of participation in activities in a gifted high school program was undertaken. Numbers of males and females participating in scientific academic, aesthetic academic, and professional development activities were tallied with the number who were eligible. Percentage of eligible female participation was consistently lower than eligible male participation in scientific academic self selected activities. The difference was particularly striking in the area of computer use. Female participation in aesthetic academics was higher than males. The percentages of male and female attendance at speaker events pertaining to professonal development appeared to be balanced. A general decline was evidenced in the percentages of both males and females participating in enrichment and acceleration options offered. (CL)
