Who Can Participate

For 6- to 8-year-old children

What Happens

Your child will hear stories about a teacher and her students in a classroom. The students do different activities during the day and the teacher responds to something that happens. Your child will guess who is good at an activity.

What We're Studying

The ability to reason about one's own or others' competence is critical to young children's learning, motivation, and self concept. In this study, we are interested in how children reason about who is good at what based on a teacher’s emotional reactions to students' performance. The study will help us understand how children use social information to learn about competence.
