Disparities in student outcomes, including gendered performance differences, are widespread in introductory physics and other STEM courses. STEM education researchers have investigated many course and student factors that could contribute to these inequities, including class size, test formats, assignment weightings, and students’ sense of belongin...

Context 1
... compare performance differences in each of these demographic categories for the prior (standard time) terms and the Winter 2018 (extended time) term, we calculate the average BTE RQ for each identity group for the prior terms and the Winter 2018 term. Figure 2 shows the average BTE Score on Repeated Questions for each identity group in the prior terms versus Winter 2018. We note that all identity groups have negative average BTE scores. ...
Context 2
... errors on the average BTE scores were determined by a 1,000 iteration bootstrap resampling. Figure 2 shows there are differences in average BTE scores in all three demographic categories. Our first research question probes at whether the differences change from the prior terms to Winter 2018. ...
