Perceived and Actual Academic Competence in Maltreated Children.
Kinard, E. Milling
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v25 n1 p33-45 Jan 2001
Comparison of maltreated (N=195) and non-maltreated (N=179) children found the maltreated children had significantly lower academic achievement scores but did not differ on perceived academic competence. Maltreated children were more likely to overestimate their level of competence, particularly for reading and arithmetic. Also, children with low maternal support were more likely to overestimate reading competence than others. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
