Numerous psychological studies have examined effects of stereotype threat in areas such as standardized tests, and athletic performance.
For example, the commonly held assumption that women are less skilled in mathematics than men has been shown to affect the performance of women on standardized math tests.
When female participants were primed beforehand of this negative stereotype, scores were significantly lower than if the women were led to believe the tests did not reflect these stereotypes(Spencer & Steele, 1997)
Poor little Aziya. Desperately trying to find an excuse why her people are failing.


TAKE NOTE:>>>>
"Gijsbert Stoet and David C. Geary reviewed the evidence for the stereotype threat explanation of the achievement gap in mathematics between men and women. They concluded that the relevant stereotype threat research has many methodological problems, such as not having a control group, and that the stereotype threat literature on this topic misrepresents itself as "well established". They concluded that the evidence is in fact very weak.[46]"

REPEAT:>>>>

"Whether the effect occurs at all has also been questioned, with researchers failing to replicate the finding. In followup work, Ganley et al.(2013)[8] examined stereotype threat on mathematics test performance. They report a series of 3 studies, with a total sample of 931 students. These included both childhood and adolescent subjects and three activation methods, ranging from implicit to explicit. While they found some evidence of gender differences in math, these occurred regardless of stereotype threat. Importantly, they found "no evidence that the mathematics performance of school-age girls was impacted by stereotype threat". In addition, they report that evidence for stereotype threat in children appears to be subject to publication bias. The literature may reflect selective publication of false-positive effects in underpowered studies, where large, well-controlled studies find smaller or non-significant effects.[8]

In a study designed to see whether incentives could overcome stereotype threat in mathematics tests, Fryer Levitt and List (2008)[47] could not replicate the stereotype threat, finding a modest facilitation effect of threat for males and females"

stop talking to yourself. You haven't proven anything, you post two or three studies against a few hundred studies that says the opposite. Lol you're typical and doing what's expected.

Again
As an individual is constantly exposed to negative images of his/her racial or ethnic group, this person begins to internalize the same social and personal characteristics of these images.

and that is basic psychology and common sense

Aziya. I posted studies directly related to the Steele and Aronson research that YOU used. If you have "a few hundred more studies" showing that stereotype threat is real, why don't you post one or two???

Probably because you don't have any.

Even Steele and Aronson admit their outcome was flawed and misinterpreted.

""They [Steele and Aronson] agree that it is a misinterpretation of the Steele and Aronson (1995) results to conclude that eliminating stereotype threat eliminates the African American-White test-score gap."[7]"

If it is flawed for African Americans, it stands to reason it is flawed for all groups. I have posted FACTUAL information to back that up. You have posted ZILCH to support your claim.

Again. You used Steele and Aronson and they admit that their test results were "misinterpreted". So why are you continuing on with this charade?

Just admit your mistake like an adult.

if you read the first page I cited several studies before and after Steele and aronson.

You look real silly trying to argue against peer reviewed studies, When you have ZILCH credentials. You can always find opposing vieopponent any subject DUH! You haven't proven anything.

Although I have already won this debate, I will post even more scientific research to back up my findings. Aziya has posted ZILCH to support her side. ZILCH!!!

Bertolt Meyer, University of Zürich, Switzerland, Psychological Institute:

"Research on stereotype threat has not remained without criticism (Sackett, Hardison, & Cullen, 2004, Cullen, Hardison, & Sackett, 2004, Stricker & Ward, 2004). Sackett, Hardison, and Cullen (2004) criticized the adjustment of the sample by Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores in the original piece on the subject by Steele and Aronson (1995), who tried to explain differences between African Americans and White Americans in an IQ test with the stereotype threat concept.

Furthermore, the few available field studies considering high-stakes testing situations failed to identify relevant effects of stereotype threat (Stricker & Ward, 2004, Cullen et al.., 2004). Findings like these led Sackett et al.(2004) to suggest that stereotype threat is of little relevance outside the psychological laboratory.

In contrast to this point of view, it has been argued that previous research in this area suffers from several limitations and therefore remains inconclusive: Steele and Davies (2003) criticized laboratory studies for methodological reasons. Danaher and Crandall (2008) argued that Stricker and Ward’s (2004) study actually supported the relevance of stereotype threat effects in the field but that these results were suppressed by unwarranted usage of overly conservative statistical methods.

In sum, there is an ongoing debate whether stereotype threat is of substantial relevance for explaining phenomena outside the laboratory. More research appears warranted."

wrong about what? that there are several hundred peer reviwed studies on this subject done by sociologists, psychologists etc. ppl with real qualifications? no thats fact. of course its gonna receive criticism just like most studies. youre mad that its environmental and not racial factors thats resposible for those test scores. lmao yeah you are done.. go to bed

REALLY!! I mean, it's beyond belief how pig headed and obstinate she is. Like you pointed out, her own source denies the validity of the study she cited. But she refuses to back down for fear of losing face.

I see no one came to her defense.

Someone needs to teach her the rules of debate.

Still waiting for Aziya to provide proof that the "stereotype threat" exists. Since her own source denied it.

Well now. That should make it all the easier to provide 2 sources that concur with Steele and Aronson's(your source) stereotype threat test findings. You know, the ones they said were "misinterpreted".

Misinterpreted, definition: "to interpret, explain, or understand incorrectly"
