Abstract
The article describes the results of an empirical study on academic competence self-assessment. This type of assessment includes assessment of own ability to succeed at mastering the scholastic attainments, as well as characteristics and dynamics of explanation reasons of their success / failure. The results indicate that self-assessment of possibility to succeed prevails. Junior school-children attribute their success to their own efforts, and failure – to bad luck. The changes occurring in explanation of their reasons for success / failure are shown across 1st and 3rd grades.

Keywords: academic competence self-assessment, attributive schemes of success / failure, junior school-children.
