Golden, Gail Anna; Cherry, Frances
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v8 n7 p761-72 Jul 1982
Hypothesized that high school girls would perform better if they anticipated test results to be private, and that boys would perform better under conditions of anticipated public feedback. Found the hypothesis to be supported for girls in average ability classes; girls in advanced ability classes performed better with public feedback. (Author/GC)
