Gender Bias and Critique of Student Writing.
Haswell, Richard H.; Haswell, Janis Tedesco
Assessing Writing, v3 n1 p31-83 1996
Investigates gender effects in critique of student writing. Finds that readers spontaneously constructed the author's sex even when they were not informed of it; rated the essays lower when they knew the writer was of their own sex; and showed an anti-male bias (measured by holistic rating) and an anti-feminine bias (measured by attribution of agency).
