The focus of my research is on the psychometric characteristics of stereotype threat research. Building on the existing literature in which numerous experiments showed that a stereotype threat manipulation diminishes the average performance on a mathematical test for women, I will study this effect on an item level. By reanalyzing existing datasets and gathering data from schools and universities I will inspect which mathematical items show differential item functioning. Finally I will construct an overall model that should provide more clarity about the effects of stereotype threat.
