Effects of Grade Level and Subject on Student Test Score Predictions.
Barnett, Jerrold E.; Hixon, Jon E.
Journal of Educational Research, v90 n3 p170-74 Jan-Feb 1997
Interviews with elementary students before and after tests in three subjects investigated how grade level and subject affected students' ability to predict test scores. Results found a significant grade-subject area interaction for predictions prior to testing. Posttest predictions differed only slightly from pretest. Prediction accuracy was strongly correlated with achievement as measured by classroom tests. (SM)
