Abstract
The article aimed to investigate under extreme gender composition (1 male 3 female or vice versa) in a Chinese oral group discussion activity, with compare to those majorities, whether the performance of gender minority will significantly affect or not.

Similar research had done during 2012. The research team presented a paper A Preliminary Investigation of the Performance of Gender Minority in an Extreme Gender Composition of Group Discussion in a regional language education conference. The conclusion of the paper previously presented claimed that there is not enough evidence to prove that minority under extreme gender composition achieved lower performance. This is a longitudinal study of the same topic but using new data which collected in the recent years so as to reexamine the conclusion of the previous paper.
