Effects of Gender and Mood on Recall in Expertise Research.
Gijselaers, Wim H.; Arts, Jos A.
Drawing on a previous study exploring expertise development in management (J. Arts, W. Gijselaers, and H. Boshuizen, 2000), this study investigated how dimensions of mood may affect recall in studies on expertise development and whether sample composition (distribution of males and females) may account for possible differences in the recall function. A data sample taken from the previous study's data set contained 18 novices, 14 students at the end of the first year of the management program, 22 students at the end of the second year, 15 from the third year, and 16 fourth-year students shortly before graduation. The materials were two cases on organizational development. Results indicate the possibility that gender and mood may affect recall in studies on expertise development. It was also shown that subjects with the same level of expertise may not be treated as replicates. Some of the error variance may be explained by the systematic bias sources of gender and mood. An appendix contains the instrument used in the study and a description of the case studies. (Contains 17 references.) (SLD)
