Such evidence suggests that the effects of college on CBASE scores did not differ in magnitude for students who differed in precollege academic ability, race, college grades, cumulative credits taken in postsecondary education, or the average academic ability of the students at the institution attended.
CBASE scores differ in magnitude for men and women.
Table 1 summarizes the estimates of net effects of each year in college (versus freshmen) on CBASE scores for men and women.
A second major trend supported in the data is that the vast majority of college impact on CBASE scores appears to take place during the first two years of college.
Finally, as suggested by the modest, but statistically significant sex x year of enrollment conditional effects across all five CBASE scores, there were non-chance differences in the effects of college for men and women.
A second major finding was that there were statistically significant differences by sex in the magnitude of the effects of college on CBASE scores.
Estimates using the CBASE would tend to support the contention that postsecondary education is a "gendered experience" that is not only manifestly different for women but may also be structured toward masculine rather than feminine intellectual orientations and learning styles (e.
Of course there is an obvious alternative hypothesis to explain the gender differences we found in the effects of college on CBASE scores.
A third major finding from our estimates was that the vast preponderance of college impact on CBASE subject areas occurred during the first two years of postsecondary education.
Our findings are in partial agreement with Wolfle's, but in the CBASE sample men and women had respective senior-year mathematics scores that were between 0.
Recall that tests for conditional effects indicated that, net of the control variables, including individual level ACT scores, the effect of college on CBASE scores did not differ for students who attended institutions differing in the average ACT scores of their student bodies.
