Developmental Shifts in Expectancies and Attributions for Performance in Mathematics.
Kaczala, Caroline; And Others
The variables selected to explore some of the determinants of students' decisions to take or not to take mathematics include measures of one's expectancy for success in mathematics, measures of the incentive value of taking the courses, and measures of selected mediating variables. Seventh and ninth graders of both sexes were tested. Two predictions of results can be made: (1) incentive values and expectancies will drop with age for girls while remaining constant or increasing for boys; and (2) sex differences will be less extreme for seventh graders than for ninth graders.
