rozumienie tekstu czytanego na maturze

Where does he study?

Steven Proud, a research student writing a PhD at Bristol University, tracked boys’ and girls’ test results at the ages of 7, 11, 14 and 16 in 16,000 schools in England. He analysed the test scores to see whether the proportion of girls in a year group made a difference to the results of both genders in Maths, Science and English. His research contradicted the widely held belief that girls are always a good influence on boys in school. He found that boys consistently perform up to a tenth of a grade worse when they study English with high numbers of girls. However, when it comes to Maths and Science, both boys and girls achieve up to a tenth of a grade more when there are many girls in the class. Proud argues that boys may do worse at English when there is a high proportion of girls in their class because they realize that the girls are better than them at this subject. “It could also be that teachers use teaching styles more appropriate to girls when there are more girls than boys in the class,” Proud says.
