Abstract

In an attempt to determine whether male and female students rate teachers differently depending on the gender of the teacher, we analyzed data from 741 classes in which there were at least 10 male and 10 female students. The results revealed small same gender preferences, particularly in female students rating female teachers. Teaching style rather than gender may well explain these preferences.
