Gender gap in grade-change requests

New research by Professor of Economics Basit Zafar and his co-author finds male college students are more likely to ask for grade changes.

In this story aired Feb. 5, 2020, on Inside Higher Ed:

At some level, it's not surprising that men are more likely to ask. What I think I learned from this study is why it is that men are more likely to ask. Women tend to be more uncertain and have lower confidence in their abilities, which is driving a large part of this difference.
