Sex and Gender as Predictors of Attitudes toward Computers: The Gap Narrows.
Chrisler, Joan C.; And Others
Ninety college students (63 women and 27 men) completed a questionnaire on computer use and attitudes toward computers. They also completed the Bem Sex Role Inventory. Results indicated no sex differences in frequency or purpose of computer use. Analysis of variance and chi square analysis by gender role orientation resulted in several significant differences. Androgynous subjects liked computers better and were more confident in their ability to use computers than were masculine subjects. Feminine and undifferentiated subjects were most likely to avoid registering for courses which involve computer work. Data are presented in two tables. (10 references) (Author/GL)
