Learning Goals and Styles by Gender -- A Study of NUS Students

Learning Goals and Styles by Gender -- A Study of NUS Students

This newsletter contains an article discussing whether men and women learn differently. The author surveyed students on how they felt about goals that "drive one to master a topic and learn it well," goals that encourage them to get good grades, and goals that motivate one to study in order to obtain acceptance by one's community. Female students scored higher on grade oriented and socially oriented goals than male students.
