This paper explores how students perceive the gender of a visually androgynous teachable agent, and if and how the perceived gender relates to the perceived personality traits of the agent. It is shown that the students perception of the agents gender was independent of their own gender. There were few significant differences in the perceived personality traits in relation to perceived gender. However, when looking at the perceived degree of gender, the traits of the agent were more positively rated by those students who perceived it as moderately gendered as compared to androgynous or strongly gendered.
