Well generally girls develop language faster than boys. (I refer to sex rather than 'gender' which is about sexuality and does not have any explicit connection to language development that I can think of). I suppose you could test this hypothesis if you had sufficient access to children. How you measure language development is more complicated and really depends on your own knowledge at present. I think tape recording a spontaneous speech sample would be best. You could describe the quantity and complexity of language used by the children. (This is actually something I have had to do at university myself so I could provide pointers).
