Causal Effects Of Single-Sex Schools On College Entrance Exams And College Attendance: Random Assignment In Seoul High Schools, Hyunjoon Park, Jere R. Behrman, Jaesung Choi

Hyunjoon Park

Despite the voluminous literature on the potentials of single-sex schools, there is no consensus on the effects of single-sex schools because of student selection of school types. We exploit a unique feature of schooling in Seoul, the random assignment of students into single-sex versus coeducational high schools, to assess causal effects of single-sex schools on college entrance exam scores and college attendance.

The gender roles scavenger hunt is an interactive learning experience that requires students to examine societal influences on gender roles. As part of this examination, students identify characteristics and behaviors society deems normal and appropriate for males and females and discuss what occurs when people act outside their gender roles.
