Expectancy of Success on Sex-Linked Tasks.
McMahan, Ian D.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v8 n9 p949-58 Sep 1982
College subjects undertook nine cognitive tasks with different perceived sex linkages, stating their expectancy of success before performance and attributing causality for their perceived performance after each task. Results indicated that (1) females hold lower expectancies of success than males and (2) perceived sex linkage of the task also affects success expectancies. (Author/GC)
