The Impact of Gender Difference Motivating Assessing and Grading Student’s Performance

Syed Ali Raza


This experiment was conducted to find out the influence of grade incentives and gender on student’s performance at the graduate level. We perform a two way analysis of variance on a sample of three groups of students taking a first-year core mathematics course and another three groups taking a fourth-year compulsory accounting course. We find that grade incentives significantly affect student performance for both sampled courses across all six groups. Gender is found to significantly affect the performance of mathematics students, but not of accounting students. The interaction between gender and grade incentives does not have a significant impact on performance in either experiment.

Keywords: Student performance, grade incentive, gender, experimental research, accounting students, mathematics students.
