The Effects of Gender Bias and Errors in Essay Grading.
King, Joanna L.
Educational Research Quarterly, v22 n1 p13-25 Sep 1998
The effects of gender bias and number of errors as unintentional determinants of essay grades were studied with 22 undergraduate education majors grading four essays by sixth graders in stereotypically male or female handwriting. Essays believed to be written by boys were graded higher than those believed to be written by girls regardless of number of errors. (SLD)
