Chan, Lorna K. S.
Gifted Child Quarterly, v40 n4 p184-93 Fall 1996
This study compared the motivational orientations and metacognitive abilities of 143 Grade 7 intellectually gifted students in an Australian selective school with 133 average-achieving age peers attending comprehensive schools. Gifted students had greater confidence in their own control over successes or failures in school tasks, demonstrated more knowledge of learning strategies, and achieved higher levels of reading competence.
