Girls beat boys in a major test of tech and engineering skills — and the gap is growing
On one major standardized test measuring proficiency in technology and engineering, there’s a gap in scores favoring girls. And it’s growing. Eighth-grade girls outperformed boys in every single category of the 2018 Technology and Engineering Literacy exam, including content-focused areas such as design and systems and technology and society, and “practice” areas, such as understanding technology principles and developing solutions and achieving goals.
