Abstract: This article examines the effects of gender and Science stream differences on the cognitive and affective outcomes of schooling at the Sixth Form level (Grade 12) in Hong Kong, using data collected for the Second IEA lnternational Science Study (SISS). It seeks to derive some dimensions of gender difference on these outcomes amongst the physical and biological Science stream pupils. The problem of the confounding effect of gender and Science stream, and the pattern of curriculum implementation effect across Science streams and courses are handled. Social and psychological implications of the findings for curriculum developers, teachers and pupils are discussed. Results of the analyses provide a basis for comparisons across school systems participating in the SISS surveys.
