In the textbook, the concept of stereotype threat was illustrated by giving elderly participants and female participants a task in which they were reminded of the negative features of their own group. the elderly and female participants then performed on the test than/as they would have if they had not been given the "negative" prompt.
The stereotype threat for a person or a group of persons provided a negative impact on their behavior. It hampers and affects their productivity.
According to theory, a person or the group of person becomes anxious about their performance when a negative stereotypes are provided or given to them.
They are less likely to perform low in the task and affects their inferiority complex.
Thus in this situation, where female and male are given a task to perform and when a "negative prompt" was provided to the females, the females performed low on the test than they would have been if the negative stereotype threat was not provided.
Thus the answer is "lower".
