Researchers have motivations. Their motivations impel them toward some research questions rather than others. Of course, factors other than personal motives, such as availability of laboratory space, funding, ease of doing research, and interest of one’s colleagues and supervisors, can play roles in determining one’s areas of study. However, nothing eliminates bias. Bias can lead to problems in the design as well as in the interpretation of research. When it comes to research on sex differences in mathematics abilities, researchers’ bias is a huge problem with enormous consequences.

The likely causal structure of phenomena such as the participation of women and minorities in mathematical, scientific, and technical careers is extremely complex. In my opinion, it can be very helpful to map out that hypothetical structure, as I attempted to do in Chipman & Thomas (1987), modeled on earlier work by Eccles, Adler, Futterman, Goff, Kaczala, Meece, & Midgley (1985). Even though the full analysis and testing of such a 13:44 P1: GDZ/FFX P2: GDZ/FFX QC: GDZ/FFX 0521826055c01 CB717-Gallagher-v2 T1: GDZ 18 July 2, 2004 Susan F.
