The Effects of Single-Sex Math Classrooms on the Mathematics Achievement of At-Risk Female Students Charlyne G. Maul July 2003 The purpose of this study was to examine and assess the effect of a single-sex math classroom on the achievement and behavior of at-risk middle school females. This study was conducted in 2003 in an alternative middle school. Pre and post test scores on the STAR computerized math achievement test were compared to see if students who chose to learn in an all-female classroom would achieve more than their peers in a heterogeneous setting. A comparison of grade equivalency scores showed students in the all-female class improved their math achievement by an average of 1.3 grade levels in a ten-week period. Using these same gains in the grade equivalency scores, a t-test (two sample) assuming unequal variance was completed and the results were significant at p=. 01.
