The Effects of Reporting One's Gender on General Education Test Performance
Anderson, Robin D.; Thelk, Amy D.
Journal of General Education, v57 n3 p170-190 2008
This study examines whether collecting gender information before general education assessments affects the performance of subjects for whom a negative domain performance stereotype exists. Results show that inquiry is not a sufficient priming stimulus to trigger stereotype threat in low-stakes assessments, yet its removal may increase motivation and performance. (Contains 5 tables.)
