Title: Significant Reduction in Gender Grade Disparities in a Reformed Introductory Physics Course DOC
Url: https://people.rit.edu/svfsps/perc2001/Potter.doc
Publisher: Rochester Institute of Technology. Center for Imaging Science
Description: This paper, presented at the 2001 Physics Education Research Conference, is a preliminary report of data from a study regarding grade distribution between among males and females in a traditionally structured introductory physics course for biological science majors at the University of California. In the traditional course there was a persistent and stable pattern of course letter-grade distributions in which males received a disproportionate share of high grades and females received a disproportionate share of low grades. This gender disparity has been significantly reduced for the same population of students in a reformed course and this paper is a preliminary report of this data.
