Test performance, gender, and temperature | Ars Technica
The results were clear. For each one-degree increase in temperature, women saw a 1.8 percent increase in the number of math questions they answered correctly. Over the full range of temperatures used here, that means the number of correct answers went up by about half the value compared to the low-temperature room. (For context, Chang and Kajackaite note that the gap in SAT math scores between men and women is about 4 percent.) In contrasts, men's scores went down gradually with rising temperatures, but so gradually that the result wasn't statistically significant.
