Flickor, pojkar, fysik och matematik: skillnader i inställning mellan hög- och lågpresterande i TIMSS 1995

Abstract [sv]

This study uses results from TIMSS 1995 to examine the attitudes of Swedish girls and boys to physics and mathematics more closely. To be more precise, the attitude to mathematics and physics among girls and boys at different achievement levels are compared. At the time of testing the students were in the 7th grade. In TIMSS 1995 each student completed an achievement test and a questionnaire. In this study the results from the achievement test are used to divide the students into achievement levels – high and low. A number of statements about mathematics and physics were selected from the questionnaire and used to examine the differences in attitudes.

It turns out that the high-achieving boys and girls have a similar attitude when statements concerning mathematics are compared but not the statements concerning physics. The high-achieving girls’ attitude to physics is more similar to that of low-achieving boys. The statements that most clearly reveal this pattern can be divided into two categories: statements concerning the student’s attitude to physics and statements about the importance of physics to the student’s future studies and work.
