Effects of Gender and Collaboration on College Students' Performance on a Piagetian Spatial Task.
Golbeck, Susan L.; Sinagra, Karen
Journal of Experimental Education, v69 n1 p22-35 Fall 2000
Studied the effects of peer collaboration on the acquisition of the understanding that water remains invariantly horizontal. Results from 69 female and 22 male college students show that peer collaboration did not lead to greater understanding than working alone, but that men and women talked about the problem differently and that the use of gestures during discussion predicted spatial understanding.
