Gender and Social Facilitation Effects on Computer Competence and Attitudes toward Computers
Journal of Educational Computing Research Volume 14, Number 2, ISSN 0735-6331
A study of 36 males and 36 females ages 15-52 found that males performed better than females on a computer-based tracking task under different audience conditions. A significant gender and audience interaction was found, with females performing better in the presence of a female than alone or with a male. Implications for educational policy and practice are discussed. (PEN)
