Preschool-Age Children's Performance Expectations for Themselves and Another Child as a Function of the Incentive Value of Success and the Salience of Past Performance.
Stipek, Deborah J.; And Others
Child Development, v55 n6 p1983-89 Dec 1984
Confirms the hypothesis that young children can make relatively realistic judgements about future performance if their attention is directed to past performance information. Sixty four-year-olds predicted performance outcomes for themselves or for another child after a series of failures. Results depended on rewards and the salience of past failures. (Author/CB)
