Assignment 

Due Date: 25.05.2021                                                                                           Marks: 20 

 

Question No.01: 

 

You are required to read the given paragraph and then identify the stage of each child according to the concept of gender constancy given by Kohlberg’s Cognitive Development Theory. Mention the appropriate age range of that stage against each column and provide the description of that stage by keeping in view the child discussed in above paragraph. 

Amna has three children. Her first child named Kiran is of age 2.5 years. Kiran whenever plays with her toys said that doll has long hair. She said that ‘she and her mother also have long hair’ but whenever she plays with her brothers she labels herself as a boy as she has the same dresses like her brother. Sara who is 7 years old knows this fact that her mother works in kitchen, cooks food for her babies while father goes to office. She insisted her younger siblings to play a doll house with her and takes care of the toys like their mother. She used to imitate her mother all the day. Amna the only son named Azaan is 4 years old. He used to observe his siblings all the time. Sometimes he tries to model his sisters and sometimes interested to play with doraemon gadgets.

Please use the following tabular format to answer the asked questions:

  Sr. No.            

Name of Child

Identification of stage

Age range of stage

Description of that stage

 

 

 

1

 

 

 

Kiran 

 

 

 

2 - 3.5 years 

 

 

 Gender identification

 Children believe it is possible to change sex by

wearing clothes of opposite sex. Can identify

household gender stereotypes: (mechanical tools used

by father and the mother works in kitchen). Gender

labeling is learned

 

 

 

2

 

 

 

 Azaan 

 

 

 

3.5 - 4.5 years

 

 

 

 Gender stability

Sex is stable over time, not situations. Older peers and

siblings are models for social learning of gender roles.

Boys may play with the toys socially labeled as girl’s

toys but do not own them ultimately. Child applies

labels to self and others, but they may be inconsistent

 

3

 

Sara  

 

 4.5 - 7 years

 

Gender consistency 

Sex is stable. Children value and imitate same sex

Behaviors. This leads to development of gender

appropriate attributes

 

 

 

Question No.02:

What are the threats which a researcher faces when he/she conducts gender related research? Explain any two. (2.5+2.5)

1) One tricky thing has been the lack of clarity around whether it is gender or sex or both being reported in primary studies and in reviews. This makes us have to use the ever-ambiguous ‘and/or’ much of the time

2) There is also a lack of transparency about clinical trial design, including a priori outcomes and analyses, or poor quality protocols. There is insufficient reporting of methodological information in current trial registries

3) The absence of evidence or the use of suboptimal data were regarded as issues of data quality that affect the conduct of systematic reviews generally.
