Examined the relationship between decision making skills and age among at-risk African American middle school boys. Survey data indicated that although older students outperformed young ones, boys were generally not efficacious in their ability to make decisions with a health or social focus. Students made the most errors involving skipped steps, regardless of age. (SM)
