Chambres, Patrick
Learning and Instruction, v3 n1 p23-38 1993
In the current article, effects of socially induced metacognitive activities on performance of 60 French elementary and secondary school students (grades 3 through 9) were studied. Performance of low-achievement students was higher in a social comparison situation than an ordinary academic situation. A strong contingent relationship between social comparison and learning was demonstrated. (SLD)
