Ndum, Edwin; Allen, Jeff; Way, Jason; Casillas, Alex – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2018
We examined the role of six psychosocial factors (PSFs) in explaining gender gaps in English Composition (n = 8,633) and College Algebra (n = 2,261) using data of first-year female (55%) and male students from 42 colleges. Using a multilevel model and controlling for prior achievement, we found that PSFs mediated between 3% and 41% of the gender…
