Child Development, v71 n2 p517-27 Apr-May 2000
Examined gender and cultural differences in over 3,000 children's ideas about what leads to academic success. Found close correspondence between children's achievement and competence-related beliefs, with the exception that young girls appeared to specifically discount their talent. The effect held regardless of children's achievement, intelligence, or age. Girls were more biased in some contexts than in others. (Author/KB)
