Gender Differences in Spelling Achievement.
Rios, Daisy M.
In this study, gender differences in spelling achievement were investigated for young adults (ages 17 to 21). Performances of males and females on standardized and written spelling tests were compared. All of the 40 students (20 males and 20 females) are from a low-economic, inner city, vocational program. The students were also given a questionnaire to determine their reading attitudes. The females, on the whole, performed better on both tests, but the difference was not significant. Their attitudes towards reading were consistent with their spelling scores. Appendices contain 7 colored bar graphs of data. (Contains 16 references and 2 tables of data). (Author/RS)
