Eleanor SayreA recent article on the gender gap on concept inventories has been highlighted in EurekaAlert! and in an article in Pacific Standard Magazine. 

The research by alumna Adrian Madsen (PhD ‘2013), Sarah B. McKagan and Eleanor Sayre, assistant professor of physics, looks at why women routinely score lower than men on common physics assessments.
