|Girls Outperform Boys on Tech,
Engineering, Even Without Class
Girls in America show more mastery in technology and engineering subjects than their boy classmates, says a new report.
The information comes from national education data released Tuesday.
The findings were part of the National Assessment of Educational Progress, or NAEP. The NAEP measures what a representative sample of students across the U.S. know and can do in several subjects. It is also known as “The Nation’s Report Card."
It is only the second time in the NAEP’s 50-year history that it tested students’ abilities in technology and engineering. The NAEP’s Technology and Engineering Literacy test, or TEL, was first given in 2014. It asks students to “solve real-world technology and engineering problems.”
The 15,400 eighth-grade students who took the TEL test in 2018 scored an average of 152 points out of a possible 300 points. In 2014, they averaged 150 points.
Girls who took the test in 2018 scored an average of five points higher than boys, 155 to 150. That is a wider difference than results from the 2014 test showed.
Between 2014 and 2018, the scores of girls increased from about 151 to 155. Boys’ scores, however, mostly stayed the same.
Yet, fewer girls take technology and engineering classes in school than
boys. Sixty-one percent of male students reported taking at least one
class like coding or robotics. Just 53 percent of female students
reported doing the same.
