Ablard, Karen E.; Mills, Carol J.
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v25 n2 p137-48 Apr 1996
Beliefs of 153 academically talented students in grades 3 through 11 about the stability of intelligence paralleled a normal distribution. About half had easily modified views, and 9% were at risk of underachievement based on self-perceptions of low ability and the belief that intelligence is stable. (SLD)
