Children's Representations of Ability and Their Changes during the First School Year.
Raty, Hannu; Snellman, Leila; Kasanen, Kati
Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, v43 n3 p249-58 Sep 1999
Asked 19 Finnish children, aged 6 and 7, on three occasions in a school year, to group their classmates according to ability. Results suggest that the impact of school and its differential concept of ability changes children's perceptions, lessening social reasons for appraisal and increasing the use of performance-based criteria.
