A Meta-Analysis of Gender Differences in Student Attitudes toward Mathematics.
Etsey, Y. Kafui; Snetzler, Suzi
This paper presents a meta-analysis study that addresses gender differences in student attitudes toward mathematics for the years 1970 to 1995. A body of 96 primary studies were used including 30,490 students (15,877 female and 14,613 males), 69 journal articles, and 27 ERIC documents in the analysis. The major conclusion of this study is that gender differences in student attitudes toward mathematics do exist but are small. Males are favored, indicating more positive attitudes toward mathematics.
