Ablard, Karen E.
Journal of Secondary Gifted Education, v8 n2 p57-64 Win 1996-97
Mothers (n=547) and fathers (n=547) of academically talented sixth grade students completed a questionnaire assessing parents' definition of academic success. Internal or external conceptions of success were related to parents' education level, gender, and ethnic group. Parents likely to emphasize internal standards were those without a doctorate, mothers, and white parents. (DB)
