Intra- and Extracultural Perceptions of Competence in Rural African American Youth.
Smith, Trellis; Brody, Gene H.
Journal of School Psychology, v38 n5 p407-22 Sep-Oct 2000
Parents, relatives, and teachers assessed cognitive and social competence among rural African American youth (N=91) to determine the extent to which adults' ratings of cognitive and social competence converge. Data supported predictions that ratings of cognitive competence would be more similar across raters than ratings of social competence. Stresses importance of identifying processes that assist African American children. (Author/JDM)
