The Effects of Single-Sex and Mixed-Sex Mathematics Classes Within a Coeducational School: A Reanalysis and Comment.
Marsh, Herbert W.; Rowe, Kenneth J.
Australian Journal of Education, v40 n2 p147-62 Aug 1996
Critical reanalysis of a previous Australian study comparing the effects of single-sex mathematics and mixed-sex mathematics instruction on students in grades seven and eight suggests that the randomly assigned class-type intervention had relatively little effect on mathematics achievement or attitudes, and that at least some effects favored mixed-sex classes. In addition, boys felt less favorable toward single-sex classes. (Author/MSE)
