A Test of the Big Fish in a Little Pond Hypothesis: An Investigation into the Feelings of Seven-Year-Old Pupils in School.
Tymms, Peter
School Effectiveness and School Improvement, v12 n2 p161-81 Jun 2001
The feelings (self-concepts and attitudes) of 21,000 British 7-year-olds toward math, reading, and school were investigated using multivariate multilevel models. The most important explanatory variables were the teacher and pupils' academic level. Other variables (age, sex, and first language) were weakly connected to attitude measures.
