The disparities in literacy skills between genders are attributed to how masculinity and femininity are taught to children, influencing the activities deemed appropriate for each gender. Another study suggested that incorporating digital literacy into education leads to a more dynamic and effective classroom environment. However, when it comes to higher education, there seems to be no impact of digital media literacy on students' academic achievement. The objective of this research was to explore whether male and female students perceive the use of digital devices differently when it comes to reading literacy, based on the PISA 2018 test. The research employed a quantitative approach, specifically T-test analysis. The study population comprised 15-year-old students in 2018, with a sample size of 15-year-old students who took part in the PISA test across 80 countries. Data for the study were collected through questionnaires completed by 612,004 students from 80 countries. The study discovered a positive correlation between students' attitudes toward digital devices and their achievement in digital reading. Additionally, the results indicated a significant divergence between male and female students' perspectives on the use of digital devices for reading literacy. However, the research revealed that most respondents provided low or moderate ratings on the questionnaire, suggesting that students do not extensively utilize digital devices during classroom lessons.
