Differences between Male Students' and Female Students' Perception of Professors
Tomkiewicz, Joseph; Bass, Kenneth
College Student Journal, v42 n2 p422-430 Jun 2008
This study is an empirical examination of possible differences between female and male college seniors' perceptions between male and female college professors. Subjects were presented with three variations of a scale designed to measure students' perceptions of university professors in general, female professors, and male professors. These students, both male and female, perceived that both male and female professors resembled university professors in general to a greater degree than female professors resembled male university professors. When females were compared with males using positive and negative items from the measurement scale, fifty three positive items could be used to describe female professors and forty eight could be used to describe male professors.
