As indicated by Kim Wallen, desires will regardless assume a job in how young ladies perform scholastically. For instance, if females talented in math are told a test is “sexually impartial” they accomplish high scores, however on the off chance that they are told guys beated females before, the females will do much more awful. “What’s odd is,” Wallen watched, “as indicated by the exploration, every one of the one obviously needs to do is tell a lady who has a lifetime of socialization of being poor in math that a math test is sexually unbiased, and all impacts of that socialization go away.”[49] Author Judith Harris has said that beside their hereditary commitment, the sustaining given by guardians likely has less long haul impact over their posterity than other natural perspectives, for example, the youngsters’ companion group.[50]

In England, contemplates by the National Literacy Trust have demonstrated young ladies score reliably higher than young men in every single educational region from the ages of 7 through 16, with the most striking contrasts noted in perusing and composing skills.[51] In the United States, generally, young ladies slacked on government sanctioned tests.

In math, the normal for young ladies was 492, which was 35 lower than young men. “At the point when young ladies take precisely the same courses,” remarked Wayne Camara, an examination researcher with the College Board, “that 35-point hole disperses a considerable amount.” At the time Leslie R. Wolfe, leader of the Center for Women Policy Studies said young ladies scored diversely on the math tests since they tend to work the issues out while young men utilize “test-taking traps, for example, instantly checking the appropriate responses officially given in numerous decision questions. Wolfe said young ladies are enduring and intensive while “young men play this test like a stick ball machine.” Wolfe additionally said despite the fact that young ladies had bring down SAT scores they reliably get higher evaluations than young men over all courses in their first year in college.[52] By 2006 young ladies were outscoring young men on the verbal bit of the United States’ across the country SAT exam by 11 points.[53] A 2005 University of Chicago examine demonstrated that a lion’s share nearness of young ladies in the classroom tends to upgrade the scholastic execution of boys.[54][55]

Grids & Structure

We deploy grid-based layouts ‘behind the scenes’ in all our basic skins. The idea behind these layouts is to provide your website with a solid visual and structural balance from the word go.

These layout structures offer ample flexibility and enhance the visual experience for your visitors, and introduces an easy-to-follow consistency across your site, while allowing you to create and update both design and content in a well thought-out, standardised framework within the constraints of the browser.

Grid-based layouts on the web

There are many resources available if this topic sparks your interest:


Although it’s not always possible we do aim for a certain consistency when it comes to structuring a Tank site. We follow established naming conventions to enable logical hooks into the underlying structure of all our basic skins:

  • header
  • navigation
  • canvas
  • content
  • sidebar
  • footer

If you are familiar with CSS you can edit the properties of the underlying structure of your site easily.

Navigation & Architecture

The idea behind most navigation in a Tank site is that of context-sensitivity - which boils down to the fact that navigation will appear when and where is required. If you add a portfolio images will be thumb-nailed for you and be immediately navigable to larger views of the uploaded media. If you add a blog date archives, categories and RSS feeds will be present automagically. All you need to do is consider your content, and what you want to do with it.

Information architecture

Besides this approach the following options are available to further architect your information according to your requirements.

Global navigation

Content grouped into the global navigation is usually accessible via the menu structure in the header of a site and demarcates the most important information on your site. The good stuff goes here.

Utility navigation

Content grouped into the utility navigation is usually accessible via the menu structure in the footer of a site and demarcates the necessary or additional information on your site. Everything else goes here.

Hidden navigation

You can also set content to ‘hidden’ which means it’s only accessible if you either link to it or tell someone where to find it.

A blend between these three options enables you to build almost any site any way you want.

Text & Typography

We use a text-to-HTML conversion tool - a filter - that allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, which is converted it to structurally valid HTML for rendering on the web.

In a nutshell it means you use certain characters as formatting commands and you place these characters amongst your text to create certain effects (bolding text) and functionality (linking text).

E.g. headings

You can easily apply the full range of headers (h2 to h6) as follows:

# big heading
## smaller heading
##### smallest heading

E.g. formatting text

Formatting text - bolding text, italicizing text, or even striking text is quite simple. Simply use the basic formatting rules you’ve just seen and surround your text with the appropriate characters.


We utilise and deploy percentage-based text-sizing, popular font-stacks & web-safe fonts across all our sites. This means that your site is legible and readable from the get-go, but still customisable according to your specifications and personal taste.

Images & Galleries

There are two ways of displaying images in your site: ‘inline’ with the rest of your content, or in sortable collections in a dedicated ‘photo section’ of their own.

Inline images

Images attached to content appear ‘inline’; in other words in the content you place them. The image below has been placed just below this paragraph and is sized automatically according to the width of the container it’s placed in.

That means images look great no matter where you put them. No need to ‘size down’ anything - in fact we recommend uploading your images large enough to cater for higher resolutions.

Inline galleries & slide-shows

If multiple images are attached to content it is possible to ‘string’ these images together into an inline gallery or slideshow. It couldn’t be simpler or easier.

Collections of images

Images can also be placed in order-able collections inside a photo section - a slightly easier way to manage large sets of images as all images are thumb-nailed and placed automatically according to the dimensions of the current skin.
