Gender Differences in the Academic Progress of Adult Undergraduates: Patterns and Policy Implications.
Robertson, Douglas L.
Journal of College Student Development, v32 n6 p490-96 Nov 1991
Explored gender differences in academic progress among adult college students (n=235) over age 25. Results indicated women manifested more interruptions and slowing in their academic progress than did men. Existing research suggests this may result from greater relationship responsiveness of women compared with men and more diverse role demands experienced by women compared with men. (ABL)
