A Study of the Level of Achievement Motivation and Its Relation to Student Grades in Psychology.
Coleman, Thomas R.
This study examined the relationship between the level of achievement motivation of Essex County College students and their grades in psychology. Forty-one ECC students, both male and female, predominantly lower-class black students, took part in the study. The level of achievement motivation was measured in terms of the scores a person obtained on a Personality Questionnaire, Scale 1 of a standardized test in achievement motivation. Grades were measured in terms of the final grade the student received in a psychology course. Results of the study showed that there was no correlation between the test scores on the Personality Questionnaire and grades in psychology courses. (DB)
