Epistemological Beliefs of Gifted High School Students.
Schommer, Marlene; Dunnell, Patricia A.
Roeper Review, v19 n3 p153-56 Mar 1997
A study of 69 gifted high schoolers examined epistemological beliefs and how these beliefs related to problem solving and academic performance. The more students believed that the ability to learn was fixed at birth, the more likely they were to provide over simplistic solutions and perform below academic expectations. (Author/CR)
