Summary

In a follow-up to findings published by H. Stumpf and J. Stanley (1996), the gender-related differences in enrollment in and scores on the College Board Achievement (SAT II) and Advanced Placement (AP) tests were studied. Differences in scores turned out to be rather stable from 1982 (for the Achievement tests) and 1984 (for the AP tests) through 1996, with 12 of the 21 SAT II tests favoring males and 2 favoring females. The differences in scores on the Achievement Test in American History and the AP Computer Science A and AB examinations, however, declined considerably in the period studied here. While there were substantial gains in the numbers of females scoring high on the Physics and Mathematics II Achievement tests, the low enrollment of female students in AP Computer Science A and AB continued to be a matter of concern. As found previously, there was a strong correlation between the percentages of males taking the two sets of tests and the gender-related differences in scores on them. (Contains 3 tables, 3 figures, and 19 references.) (Author/SLD)
