Academic Performance of Male versus Female Accounting Undergraduate Students: Evidence from Nigeria
Okafor, Chinwuba Ambrose; Egbon, Osamuyimen
Higher Education Studies, v1 n1 p9-19 Jun 2011
Prior researches on the differences in classroom performance between male and female students show mixed results. While significant differences exist in some studies, others show no differences. Moreover, such studies were done in developed countries. This study aims to contribute to this gender discourse by using a developing country setting. It was hypothesized in this study that no differences exist between male and female performance in undergraduate accounting courses. The finding of this study reveals that there is no significant difference between academic performance of male and female accounting students in undergraduate accounting courses, although the males achieve a higher mean performance than their female counterpart in all the courses.
