We did a small project at school and I would like to analyse the data. We conducted a survey of simple yes/no questions and I would like to see if there is a difference between the responses from males and females.

For example, if I have 12 'yes' and 8 'no' answers from males and 4 'yes' 16 'no' answers from females, what test or procedure could I use to show that the difference is statistically significant?

For such small sample sizes I usually resort to Fisher's exact test. The wikipedia page actually has a worked out example that is very much like yours.
