What Makes One Able? The Formation of Pupils' Conceptions of Academic Ability.
Raty, Hannu; Kasanen, Kati; Snellman, Leila
International Journal of Early Years Education, v10 n2 p121-35 Jun 2002
The development of conceptions of academic ability was examined by comparing peer assessments made by preschoolers and children in grades 1-4. Findings from a team selection task showed that by fourth grade, children have acquired a clear conception of ability. Findings from a free classification task showed that academic skills did not factor into assessments until children were in Grade 4. (JPB)
