The Great Divide: Gender Issues in Attitude, Perception, and Knowledge within the Researched Paper.
Bechtold, Melanie; Laney, Rick; Renshaw, Cindy; Witte, Mary
The purpose of this paper is to examine the attitudes, perceptions, and knowledge of males and females in regard to the researched paper. To answer this question, a primary survey was used to gather data as the primary method. A survey was distributed to secondary school students in northeast Indiana as well as undergraduate level writing classes at a northeast Indiana university. Also examined were previously published studies to formulate a foundation for findings. The results of this study indicate that while males and females share similar knowledge about the researched paper, their perceptions and attitudes for a majority of the researched paper are vastly different. This study has several implications; the largest implication is that the researched paper must continue to be taught. Also, more in-depth research must be done in this area. Teachers and the public on all levels will greatly benefit from more published academic research in this area. The survey instrument is attached. (Author/RS)
