A study from the US government's National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) has found that girls test higher than boys in engineering and technology.

The study, analyzing data from a 2014 round of tests on 21,500 eighth-grade students, found that on average, girls scored three points higher than boys on a series of science and engineering questions.

Can we trust these numbers? After all, how many are "self-identified" re: gender?
