Gender Differences in a Cooperative Computer-Based Language Task.
Underwood, Geoffrey; And Others
Educational Research, v32 n1 p44-49 Spr 1990
Four measures of performance of three types of pairings (boy/boy, girl/girl, girl/boy) involved in completion of a language task on microcomputers gave consistent results. Single-gender pairs improved in comparison with individuals working alone but mixed-gender pairs did not. Single-gender pairs tended to share task and discuss solutions, whereas mixed pairs separated task components and worked at each other's instructions. (SK)
