Declining Perceptions of Competence: A Consequence of Changes in the Child or in the Educational Environment?
Stipek, Deborah J.; Daniels, Denise H.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v80 n3 p352-56 Sep 1988
Eighty middle-class, ethnically diverse kindergarten (n=40) and fourth-grade (n=40) students rated their current academic competence and predicted their future academic attainment. Results suggest that developmental change in children's judgments about their competence must be understood in terms of interaction between age and classroom environment. (TJH)
