Abstract

The feelings (self-concepts and attitudes) of 21,000 British 7-year-olds toward maths, 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. (Contains 26 references.) (MLH)
