A meta-analysis was performed to synthesize existing research of gender differences on attitudes toward computers. One hundred and six studies were located from three sources, and their quantitative data were transformed into Effect Size (ES). The overall grand mean of the study-weighted ES for all 106 studies was 0.19. The results suggest that male subjects had slightly higher attitudes toward computer female subjects. While many authors have indicated that women and girls are more likely to hold lower attitudes toward computers (e.g., Jagodzinksi & Clarke, 1986), the results of this study provide an accumulated research-based evidence to support this hypothesis. Left unanswered is the question of what factors truly contribute to the differences. Studies of this question will require further clarification of the exact relationship between gender and computer learning. This metaanalysis points out only that gender differences on attitudes toward computers exist.
