Lack of Stereotype Threat at a Liberal Arts College
Rivardo, Mark G.; Rhodes, Michael E.; Klein, Brandi
College Student Journal, v42 n3 p832-841 Sep 2008
Stereotype threat has been demonstrated to reduce the performance of stereotyped individuals in the threatened domain (Steele & Aronson, 1995). This study attempted to replicate the finding that stereotype threat instruction can erase the performance deficit women experience in math performance (Johns, Schmader, & Martens, 2005) and to further evaluate the arousal hypothesis of stereotype threat (e.g. Ben-Zeev, Fein & Inzlicht, 2005). The study provided no evidence of stereotype threat F(2, 91) = 1.60, p = 0.208, partial h[superscript 2] = 0.034. Stereotype threat may be less likely to affect performance at a small, liberal arts institution where the learning environment is both nurturing and personal. (Contains 3 tables.)
