The relationship between gender and stress levels was examined in this study. It was hypothesized that females would express more stress than males, that females would experience more stress on the math task than the spelling task, and that males would not experience a large difference in stress levels on the math and spelling tasks. A math task and a spelling task were used to create stress and a 10-point stress scale was used to measure stress levels of the participants. The experiment was a within-subjects design. The results were insignificant and did not support the hypothesis, revealing almost no difference between stress levels of males and females on both tasks.
