Huang, Penelope M.; Brainard, Suzanne G.
Journal of Women and Minorities in Science and Engineering, v7 n4 p315-37 2001
Attempts to identify determinants of the gender gap in science, math, engineering, and technology (SMET) students' levels of self-confidence in math, science, and overall academic ability. Results point to perceived respect from professors as the strongest determinant of female academic self-confidence whereas the perceived quality of teaching is the strongest predictor among male students.
