Keller, Johannes

Examined the impact of increased salience of negative stereotypic expectations on math performance among high school students. Results indicated that female students in the condition of heightened salience of negative stereotypic expectations underperformed in comparison to their control group counterparts. The effect of blatant stereotype threat resulted in increased self-handicapping tendencies in women, which led to significantly impaired math performance. (SM)
