3.11.1: Cancelled

Gender differences in career aspirations and outcomes has been an ongoing interest to researchers and educators, including the field of gifted education. In 1989, Reis, Callahan, and Goldsmith published findings from a study of intellectually gifted students’ attitudes towards future educational options, career choices, family, and school achievement. Their research also examined gender differences in gifted students’ attitudes towards education, career, and family. This presentation will report about a study of gifted adolescents attending the same program two decades later, in which they were administered a questionnaire with many of the same items included in the original research.
