|Abstract:||In science identity perception research, there is a need for tests that can estimate student beliefs without presenting a reading burden for young students and low-proficiency readers. We respond to this challenge by developing a visual assessment, employing photos to query opinions about scientists’ gender and ethnicity/race. In two samples, adults (n=162) and children (n=42), we found a bias: males chose images of men more than females chose women. Future directions are discussed.|
