Description

This study investigated the relationship between stereotype threat (women preforming poorly on math related tasks) and carryover effect (under performance on an unrelated task immediately following the stereotype threat). Participants were randomly assigned two either the stereotype threat condition or the control condition. All participants received an activity packet that was identical except for the inclusion of a stereotype threat in the introduction of stereotype threat condition packets. Participants read the introduction, filled out demographic and distractor questions, and then completed a logic puzzle from the Spring 2008 LSAT that did not require math related skills. There was a significant difference between conditions on task performance concluding that stereotype threat may carryover to cause underperformance on an unrelated task.
