Abstract

This study examined the extent to which women and men majoring in science, math, engineering, and technology (SMET) fields engaged in a broad array of effective educational practices. Women in SMET fields were generally as, or more, engaged in educationally fruitful activities as their male counterparts. The results of this study, when combined with other research, suggest that women may experience greater gender parity in math and science fields in college than in either high school or the post-college SMET work-place.
