How to Improve Women’s Performance in Physics through Instructing Stereotype Threat

Abstract

Research into learning physics has repeatedly demonstrated lower motivation and poorer performance for female students than for male students. To attempt to reduce gender differences in strategy use, flow, and performance we used a stereotype threat manipulation. In a 2 x 2-design study (instruction x gender) with 37 11 grade students (20 female) we tested… (More)
