Developmental Differences in the Evaluation of Ability and Effort.
Zonana, Katharine Bagby
Children judged the ability and effort of peers whose test performance varied across two dimensions: number of problems attempted and percentage correct. There was a developmental progression in the children's evaluative approach. Younger children used only one cue, number correct, to evaluate both ability and effort. Older children used both cues and made significantly more negative ability and effort evaluations. (Author)
