A Multi-Year Analysis of Asian Gender Differences on Advanced Placement Exams
Moore, George; Slate, John R.
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v6 n4 Oct-Dec 2011
The performance of Asian boys and girls on Advanced Placement (AP) exam overall scores across the United States for the past 14 years was analyzed. For each of the 14 years of data analyzed, Asian boys had statistically significant higher percentages of overall AP exam scores of 5 than did Asian girls. In addition, the gap between the mean performance of Asian boys and girls did not change over this 14-year time period. Implications of our findings are presented and recommendations for future research are made. (Contains 1 figure, 15 tables and 2 footnotes.)
