Rudasill, Kathleen Moritz; Callahan, Carolyn M.
Journal of Advanced Academics, v21 n2 p300-329 Win 2010
The purpose of this study is to examine the contribution of gender to the academic self-perceptions of ability and related coursework plans for high school and college across academically advanced students. Participants were academically advanced students (N = 447) from grades 5 to 12. Findings revealed that (a) girls' self-perceptions of ability scores were higher than boys' in humanities, and boys planned to take more math courses than girls; (b) academically advanced students' self-perceptions of ability correlated with their future coursework plans. Results point to the importance of understanding how gender stereotypes contribute to academically advanced students' academic self-perceptions of ability and coursework plans. (Contains 5 tables.)
