Who has better handwriting: girls or boys?

According to the National Assessment for Educational Progress, that tested thousands of students in eighth through 12th grades, the girls win.

Students were asked to preform writing tasks to persuade, to explain and to convey an experience. On average, girls scored nearly 20 points higher than the guys.

In a very unscientific test of this result, Channel 4 anchors Jennifer Waugh and Rob Sweeting wrote "Happy Birthday" and are asking the viewers to pick the better handwriting.
