Correlates of Gender Differences in Cognitive Functioning. Report No. 96-03
Wilder, Gita Z.
College Entrance Examination Board
This report offers a broad overview of the three major categories of explanations of gender patterns in cognitive functioning. Two of the major categories are biological and psychosocial. The third category, explanations that have been attributed to differences in the educational experiences of men and women, is treated separately because while such explanations are most appropriately considered a subset of psychosocial factors, they have special significance in the context of assessing cognitive ability.
