Ilardi, Barbara C.; Bridges, Lisa J.
Sex Roles, v18 n5-6 p333-42 Mar 1988
Study of 112 grade 4 and 6 children reveals that girls are less likely than boys to underrate their abilities assessed by test scores, but more likely to underrate teacher assessments of competence. Teachers rate boys who underrate themselves lower than they do boys who overrate themselves, but do the reverse for girls. (Author/BJV)
