Predicting Mathematics Performance in High School Girls and Boys.
Sherman, Julia
Journal of Educational Psychology, v71 n2 p242-49 Apr 1979
Females' and males' ninth grade scores for three cognitive tests and eight mathematics attitudes scales were used to predict mathematics performance. These scores significantly predicted mathematics performance 1-3 years later. Spatial visualization was an important variable, significantly predicting geometry grade for girls, but not for boys.
