Schulz, Wolfram H. – Online Submission, 2005
Student performance is generally viewed as the main criterion variable when analysing equity in the outcomes of education. However, there is evidence that even with increasing equity in achievement, inequity in other important learning outcomes might still prevail. Students' judgements of their own ability to solve tasks in Mathematics or…
