Girls' and Boys' Mathematics Achievement, Affect, and Experiences: Findings from ECLS-K
Lubienski, Sarah T.; Robinson, Joseph P.; Crane, Corinna C.; Ganley, Colleen M.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v44 n4 p634-645 Jul 2013
Amid debates about the continued salience of gender in mathematics, this report summarizes an IES-funded investigation of gender-related patterns in the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study-Kindergarten Class of 1998-99 (ECLS-K). Girls' and boys' mathematics achievement, confidence, and interest were examined, along with experiences at home and school. Teacher-reported instructional practices shed little light on gender gaps in mathematics performance; however, teachers' perceptions of girls and boys could play a role.
