Compared the performance of females and males on the Swedish SAT. Participants answered questions on either conventional multiple-choice answer sheets or multiple-choice self-assessment answer sheets, thus testing the effect of self-assessment. Those who made self-assessments outscored those who did not, particularly those who rated themselves low on traits traditionally regarded as masculine. (Contains references.) (SM)
