Locus of Evaluation in Children's Learning from Textbook Material.
Brady, Peter J.; And Others
Seventy-eight fourth grade children were randomly assigned to one of two evaluation groups. One group (self-evaluation) judged the correctness of their answers and reinforced themselves while the other group (other-evaluation) was judged and reinforced by some other person. Results showed that girls were significantly more responsible for failure than boys and that in the self-evaluation condition boys were significantly less anxious than girls and less likely to lie. Moreover, the results suggested that boys who evaluated themselves as compared to boys who were evaluated by others tended to experience reduced anxiety and an enhanced self-concept. (Author)
