Stipek, Deborah J.; Tannatt, Lupita M.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v76 n1 p75-84 Feb 1984
A standardized open-ended interview was used to study how children, four to eight years of age, judge their own and their classmates' abilities. Self-ratings declined with grade, but peer ratings did not. Evaluation differences are discussed in terms of cognitive development and changes in the educational environment. (BS)
